The surprise joint bid from San Diego and Tijuana to host the 2024 Summer Olympics was shot down today by the US Olympic Committee, which just discovered that cross-border bids are against the rules. "The news was delivered as San Diego Mayor Bob Filner and his Tijuana counterpart, Carlos Bustamante, prepared to name a cross-border planning committee within the next week and unveil a logo." LA's still in the running, though. [Sports Illustrated, image via]
