If we'd been a bit less lucky, the New York Olympics – I shudder even to write it – would be opening next week on the Hudson River. There would be archers in Brooklyn and triathletes in Central Park, though whether we'd have London-style snipers and anti-aircraft missiles on Fifth Avenue remains unknown. The city's three or four fans of rhythmic gymnastics must be devastated.
Oh man, so true. I think it was Mayor Anthony Williams who briefly tried for a Washington/Baltimore Olympics bid, and I was just like, “Have you lost your fucking mind?” The Olympics coming to your city is like a punishment. God help you.
RELATED: There was a group of Arlingtonians who wanted the stadium for the Montreal Expos to go in Arlington instead of Washington, and I was pretty terrified that they’d get their way for a hot minute. Bullet: dodged. Good luck, London.
