    Re: London 2012

    I think the real reason New York lost was due to concerns over transport (streets already packed with cars) and questions about the sites chosen for stadiums. As I understand there is already a suitable stadium in New York, but it needs alot of work done on it.

    Well because from what I heard, new york was planning for another stadium I think for the Jets football team, but I would need someone from NY to clear that up for me

    but the location of the stadium got the politicians stopping each other from going anywhere

    I would love to see San Francisco get an opportunity, but too bad our rich and poor neighborhoods are too mixed together together to get anything done. Other than that we have one too many bums and can't use angel island or alcatraz

    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart

    No it won't be more.
    There is alot of financial loss coupled with hosting the Olympic games in your town, the main reason why people want them so much is prestige...

    It is possible to make a profit, but it is the exception rather then the rule.

    I think that it's awesome that London's hosting it. Afterall, they are very sport-inclined, especially soccer-wise. Paris lost by 1 vote though, but London really deserved it.

    and New York lost because of damn politics again, if you guys want the thing just build the stupid stadium already

    Sadly................................ but they might raise taxes.......... also they are already working on rebuilding the twin towers, so I doubt they'll be looking for olympics
    You should stop talking about your dreams, and start making them.

    There is something so human in the desire to never give up, while at the same time, never giving it your all?
