Can you IMAGINE if DC got to host the 2024 Summer Olympic games!? Just think about the traffic nightmares!
According to the popular, and delightfully hipster website, DCist.com, a non-profit gorup has been formed in order to make a bid on behalf of DC to host the 2024 Summer Olympic games.
The group's president Bob Sweeney had this to say:
"We are the safest and most secure city in the world. The largest expense of any Olympic Games is security, and the fact that we've got it pretty built in to our everyday life here in Washington, we would leverage that asset tremendously to put on this high-profile event."
