Boston to Bid for 2024 Olympics

The U.S. Olympic Committee has selected Boston to make a bid for the 2024 games.

I have mixed feelings about this decision. On one hand, hosting the Olympics would be a big feather in our cap and could be a lot of fun. It would be fun to see Olympic baseball at Fenway. On the other hand, it could be the second coming of The Big Dig and cause even more traffic and taxpayer headaches than we already have.

If things get really bad I suppose they can recruit Mitt Romney to help out as he did with the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City. That is assuming he isn’t occupied with another office. Should that come to pass, liberals may oppose Boston’s bid just as conservatives (myself included) opposed Chicago’s bid for the 2016 games. If Chicago won the bid we would have had the Obama Olympics. The 2016 Olympics will be held in Rio de Janiero.

At this point, Boston and Rome are the only two cities that have made official bids although cities in France, Germany and Hungary are also expected to make bids as well. The IOC will pick the host city for the 2024 games in 2017.
