Take back the 2002 winter games!

Most people I talk to in Salt Lake City never wanted the games here and sure
as hell don't want them now. Let the IOC have them back.
Salt Lake should tell the IOC to stuff it, unless of course the IOC would
like to kick in a cool hundred million rental fee for facilities. Especially
now that the corporate sponsorship money is going to dwindle to nothing.
Naw, never mind. We wouldn't want the damn things even if they kicked in a
billion.

Sounds like the sour grapes of someone caught with their fingers in the cookie
jar.
Well I didn't want that after all.

Go ahead, give to another city like Calagry (one of the select few who would be
able to pull it off). It sure would beat trying to put on the show like any form
of 'punishment' will be given that would prevent this happening in the future.
Hey this all sounds familiar impeach or resign, hmmmm.

The sponsorships may dry up for 3-6 months, but it is unlikely that anything
short of ritual sacrifice would deter American sponsors, and the rest of the
world are pretty much the same.
