Quote Of The Day
“The U.S. Olympic Committee should yank the 2024 Olympic bid from Boston, and now. This is a bad situation. It’s almost guaranteed to get worse …
Since picking Boston for 2024, it has become abundantly plain to everyone behind the scenes that the Boston bid seemingly sold the USOC a bill of goods; that it has become all but impossible for the bid to recover from the hole in which it now finds itself; and that the only way out for the USOC, despite the pain, is to admit it made a mistake, dump Boston 2024 and assess its options.
One option is to sit out 2024 entirely.”
– Excerpt from piece by Olympic expert Alan Abrahamson (admittedly an LA resident) urging the USOC to dump Boston and pick LA as “America’s Olympic city” and say that LA will host America’s next Olympics, whenever that is.
