Nobody that I know in NYC wanted the Olympics, not even the biggest sports fans. The Olympic Games is one of the world's greatest scams, where almost every host city has lost money and has been left holding the bag with useless stadiums for cycling and yacht competitions after the two week Olympic Three Card Monte Mob has closed the tent and moved on to the next sucker city.
So, again, since most New Yorkers did not want the Olympics, they got what they wanted when the games were awarded elsewhere. Thank you, voters.
That heavy favorite Paris lost makes it even sweeter. The francais are really depressed about this, quelle domage.
