    Seattle it's a beautiful thought, but come on
    You might get considered but because as a city you are so passive agressive and can't agree on ANYTHING that allows the city to move forward, you will lose the bid. You gave up your basketball team beacuse "there were more important things" then when they did leave you learned alot of people really liked sports (and spending money in your city). You fight over everything so please don't embarass us any more than you already do. You either are a city that embraces change and moves forward, or you are a city that stays the same because that's what we do. It is a love hate relationship that needs to change.

    A good way to bankrupt the city
    This is a great way to bankrupt the region. look at what happened to Whistler/Blackcombe. The resort went bankrupt as a result of building the infrastructure for the olympics. This is a huge SCAM and Seattle would do well to avoid the olympics.

    The model isn't very good...
    I'd say pass. The return on investment just isn't there. It's been a loser in recent history.

    Remember the last time?
    They wanted all businesses to change their names. Anything with Olympic in the name must be changed. at least for the duration of the Olympics. I'm sure that would sit well with all the thousands of businesses! Remember the London Olympics where that restaurant has to drop the "O" from their sign to stay in business during the games. No thanks.

    It would require the USGS
    To temporarily rename those mountains and penninsula left of Seattle until after the closing ceremonies.

    I can see the opening ceremonies now
    A million umbrellas and cars parked on I-5 & I-90. It would certainly top the 74' Expo in Spokane though.

    Ya right, We cant even afford (manage) ourselves
    But I guess, thats what dreams are made for. Just watch, how much this dream will cost tax payers. If seattle could only manage a popsickle stand. THAT WOULD BE TO MUCH.

    To host the Olympics you need a united front
    As we have seen, there are a lot of businesses and politicians who don't see the benefit, only the up front cost and work.

    I am for it. I hope this time around my council members and business leaders are too.
