Olympic Rings Good or Bad for the Purse Strings?

So, by now, you all know that the United States Olympic Committee voted Boston as its Applicant City for the 2024 Summer Games and the Paralympic Games.

Boston was selected over Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.  The last U.S. city to host the Olympics was Salt Lake City back in 2002 and it has been 18 years since the Summer Olympics has called the USA home.

The field is not yet complete, but for now Boston is competing against Rome. Germany is expected to enter a bid for either Berlin or Hamburg, South Africa will likely throw their hat into the ring, and Paris and Istanbul have been said to be entering the competition as well.

The host city will be chosen by the International Olympic Competition in 2017.

So, I ask you, based upon the knowledge that you have, what’s your opinion?

Bring on the Olympic Rings or Hell, No! Forget about those things?
