Canada is excited; Photo - APCanada will be hosting the 2010 Winter Olympics, with the beautfiul western city of Vancouver beating Pyeongchang, Korea, and Salzburg, Austria. Canada's good news may mean that New York's chances of hosting the 2012 Summer Olympics are decreased, since the IOC probably wants to spread the wealth around the world.

Gothamist would love for the city to benefit from the revenue and goodwill of the Olympics, but the idea of having the Olympics in New York seems crazy, with the amount of additional cars and people in the city. Much like the was the proposed Westside Jets Stadium seems great in theory but when you actually think about it, it's scary.
