It sucks that Chicago and Tokyo didn't get it but Rio De Janeiro would be nice to go to. It's the first time a South American country got the olympics.

You can't replace Santo, you copy his spirit. You find a way to find the good in everything, every day. You laugh at yourself as heartily as you laugh with others. You suffer without complaint and stand tall in the face of disappointment. You battle.

RIP Ronnie, you will be missed

I'm excited for Rio de Janeiro! When they announced that they were a finalist, that's who I wanted it to go to. I can't wait to see these games!

I'm happy for Rio, I'll let them host, but Chicago should've hosted the 2016 Olympics! grin.gif

laughing.gif

But seriously, Congratulations to Rio de Janerio. yes.gif

censored.gif you, IOC, for not giving Chicago the 2016 Olympics and for not bringing Baseall and Softball back (though that was decided back in August, apparently)... noexpression.gif

I'm sure the Olympics will come back to the states soon enough. We still have more money to build the necessary venues needed than a lot of countries, so I'm sure they'll be back before you're dead. noexpression.gif

And Victorio, I'm still pissed they're not bringing baseball and softball back too!

I believe it's because the Greeks had their own recession in the years that followed... unsure.gif I'm looking it up right now... book.gif

I remember four years ago, when we were awaiting the announcement for the 2012 Olympics. It's still fresh in my head; I can remember some of the presentation video the NYC2012 committee put together.

I'm still bitter over the IOC's decisions to not give the 2012 Games to NYC and to take away Baseball and Softball... noexpression.gif

I just heard that they were broke/came awfully close to being broke after hosting the Olympics. I also know the venues have basically been in disrepair since 2004. unsure.gif

This will be London's third time to host the Olympics, and I think it would have been awesome to have them in NYC! I'm ready for the Olympics to come back, but I'm still glad they're going to be in Rio. I think South America deserves a turn. happy.gif

I remember that too.

LA or NYC should try for the 2020 games, those two cities are probably the best chances the US has. We HAVE to get them in 2020. We have to. I'll be pissed if we don't.
