I watched as it was decided live on the Today Show.
I didn’t want NYC for a few reasons. Frist, before 9/11, there was abosoluty no talk about NYC getting or trying for the games, then 9/11 happens and all of a sudden, NYC has got to get it! Why?
They during the time that they were building the Olyimpic vernes, they would be building the new WTC and the same time, all would cost the city tons of money and I’m sure would have bankurupted the city like in the late 1970’s. Plus, now they is trouble in building the new WTC and will likly not be finsh in the year 2009 as was projected, but a year later. Is this the city you want to awared the games? I think not.
Also, the main staduim would be the new staduim for the New York Jets, and not the Giants, and may run Madison Sqaure Garden out of business, but not there is no Olympics, there maybe no Stadium, I hope…
I’m looking forward to Vancouver but I hope Toronto gets the 2016 games after London and maybe Paris will get the 2020 ones or a Freach city will get the 2014 winter games. I think the five cities in the final bid for the 2016 games will be from Africa, North and South America, and it will could down to New York City and Toronto. It will be very exciting to see who wins!
