Los Angeles 2024?

New, 48 comments

Forget the NFL: LA wants to host the 2024 Summer Olympics: "In a letter to the United States Olympic Committee, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa confirmed LA's "enthusiastic interest" in a bid for the Olympic Games--a process that takes years and millions of dollars to complete if LA can beat out other U.S. cities. Los Angeles hosted the games in the Coliseum twice before -- once in 1932 and once in 1984." Dallas and Boston are also vying for the chance to be the US's nominee for host city. [NBC LA]
