Yes, it's a great day for our little city here in Ontario, as we have pulled off the odds and... what? London, ENGLAND?! Oh. Well, that makes more sense.

Surprised to see Paris lose again, especially since they've bid twice in the recent past and come up short. Now with this high-profile European games, they'll probably have to wait until around 2028 to get a summer games.



"You can look the other way once, and it's no big deal, except it makes it easier for you to compromise the next time, and pretty soon that's all your doing; compromising, because that's the way you think things are done. You know those guys I busted? You think they were the bad guys? Because they weren't, they weren't bad guys, they were just like you and me. Except they compromised... Once." -- Jack Bauer

It's just as well...UWO's stadium can only seat about 8,000 or so anyway. :)

I was kinda hoping they'd go to Moscow.

I knew that NY was more or less out of the running, but I'm still breathing a sigh of relief. This city is difficult on its best day and often unmanagable in the summer. I can't fathom what it would be like with Olympics in it.



And that's how you narrate a story.

It looked like a sealed deal that Madrid was going to get it a couple of months ago.

I'm sure London's Olympic victory is solely due to David Beckham's sudden decison to completely ignore that fact that he plays for Real Madrid and vouch for his real home country's final bid with the IOC.

And English contractors breaking rules and criticizing the Paris Stadium.

I figure ending Federer's kajillion* match winning streak at the US warrants a new thread rather than hijacking the Serena one. Del Potro won it in five (sports.espn.go.com)
