    Good for London. I'm very happy with the results.

    Same here. Just imagining the traffic makes me uneasy.

    Yeah, housing all of those people, even mass transit would be packed to the brim. Moving about the city, simply impossible.

    2016 is long enough away that I will probably have relocated to SoBe by then (that's what most of my friends do when they reach mid-life crisis).

    I would rather it have been France. Our little country is already over crowded as it is. London is too small to house all those people and provide transport for them. London is in fact terrible full stop.

    nah, paris is too beautiful, they might make way for ugly modern architecture and ruin it.

    London isnt as pretty, so im fine with that. haha. I loved what chirac said about british food, pretty hillarious that heads of state could be so... silly, funny? anyway, its a funny rivalry either way.

    i don't think New York is going to try for 2016. All the stadium plans and everything were contingent on getting the '12 games. Putting the projects four years out, destroys the financing plans. The city was planning on revenue from the Olympics to help pay some of the debt.

    They say America has a good shot at getting the '16 games, but which city would be able to do it? Miami? Dallas? Seattle?
