    Tulsa is ridiculous, but less ridiculous than Detroit being on that list. Detroit is bleeding money. Population has fallen from 1.8 Million to 700,000 in the last what 20 years.Unemployment over twice the national average at over 18%. No way should they spend money to host the Olympics.

    Yeah I'm thinking Vegas in August would be ideal. Especially those enjoyable days where it never gets below 100. They couldn't have a dog track without them practically dropping dead.

    Tulsa's city leaders can barely come to an agreement on where to put a dog park. I can't imagine the chaos if they actually got the Olympics. BUT here's hoping they get it, because no way do they have enough rooms so the spillover will go all over the state and probably Arkansas.

    At least half of the cities on that list are just as laughable as Tulsa in regards to hosting the Olympics... but it is only Tulsa that deserves scorn and ridicule for being on it.

    The city of Tulsa may yet be unsuitable to bear the scrutiny of all the world's eyes or host all the world's great athletes. A more fitting assignment would be to house the world's lepers and other untouchables.

    Maybe the first indoor Olympics?

    Broken Arrow would be a better choice. If we can defeat the Kialegee's and the evil casinos, we can host the Olympics and all the debauchery it brings.

    Currently the "world's great athletes" are killing their model girlfriends. Let's round'em up in one place and let TPD deal with them.

    If Tulsa got it, you can bet they would hold events in OKC at OSU and OU, When it was in LA last time, they had events down in Orange County. The logistics of it would require it be spread out a bit. But they would need a little bigger stadium than that tiny thing at TU or OSU. Is there any plans to build something that would justify an event like that in Tulsa?

    Cause it's required to have the games in August? Do them from mid September to the beginning of October. It's fantastic weather here at that time.

    Or do them in July, doesn't matter since you can do about 9/10 events of the summer Olympics indoors anyhow.

    Not like Vegas in the summer is any worse than Atlanta. But it doesn't matter to you because you hate Vegas.

    One must redefine "great" so broadly as to render it meaningless in order to include an athlete with no legs.

    The same is true for Tulsa. If cities had legs, Tulsa would not.
