15. Things are more expensive now than in '68
Edited on Fri Oct-02-09 12:53 PM by Sultana
The US will it get in 2020.

We have London coming up in 2012, then Rio, then the US or somewhere in the Mid-East (?). IT'S A ROTATION, FOLKS. Chill out!

But Chicago being eliminated first was a bunch of croc-shit, Tokyo and Madrid should have been eliminated first. Just by the shear fact that that the Olympics had been in China last yr and that they will be in Europe in '12.
