Oh Lord, Please No.
- Competition to host the 2016 Summer Olympic Games could come down to Chicago vs. Los Angeles because the San Francisco 49ers apparently have pulled the rug out from their city's Olympic stadium plan.
The 49ers decision to stop negotiating with San Francisco -- and possibly move the team to Santa Clara -- left that city's Olympic bid in disarray. It sent San Francisco's delegation home from a two-day seminar with the U.S. Olympic Committee in utter confusion.
San Francisco's loss could be Chicago's gain. If San Francisco is forced to fold its Olympic tent, that would leave Chicago and Los Angeles as the only two cities vying for the right to be the USOC's choice.
