Re that Number One on your Top Ten list, here’s how the Olympians see it:
“I’m still in a state of shock. I can’t believe we couldn’t get past the first round. I still thought the (Chicago) bid overall was the best,” said three-time Olympic gold medalist swimmer Ambrose “Rowdy” Gaines.
“Maybe there is some hangover from politics, from the last eight years,” Gaines said.
Hitler won Germany the Olympics. Bushitler cost America the Olympics. It all makes sense.
[UPDATE: Lots of mail pointing out:
Actually Hitler did not win Germany the 1936 Olympics. The IOC picked Berlin as the site for the ’36 Games on April 26, 1931 in a meeting in Barcelona.]
