Tulsa? Really?

    Story in this morning's Colorado Springs Gazette says Tulsa wants to host the Olympics.

    I've been to Tulsa. Nothing wrong with it, but it doesn't exactly roll off the tongue with places like Los Angeles, Vancouver, Toyko, London, etc.

    Would anybody be excited about going to the summer Olympics in Tulsa?

    I think Tulsa would have a slight edge over Podunk

    Birmingham, Alabama and not England, was also interested in getting the Summer Games. I think it was for 2020 but the mayor pushing for it, was in legal trouble over something, I forget, and I think the dream died with him.

    Just yesterday there was a story in the Post talking about how the way Chicago was snubbed basically led all major US cities to say "fuck it" when it comes to the Olympics. The USOC carries the IOC, but right now there's a big schism between the two bureaucracies. It made it sound like if there is an Olympic bid in 2020, it's going to be either half-hearted or coming from a town with next to no support just trying to get on the map.

    Fans and writers should enjoy 2016.
    Come for the rapes, stay for the murders. Brazil not safe yet, but we promise we will try real hard.

    On the other hand, if your ex-wife takes your kid and gets married and the douchebag new husband tries to kidnap your own son, you'll eventually get him back.

    Or maybe you'll run into Michelle Johnson and Demi Moore on the beach. They'll probably still look good in 2016, Blame It On Rio + 32 years.

    Shouldn't that say "stay for the kidnappings" instead?

    I just want to get someone to clear this up for me.

    Are we talking about THAT Tulsa? The same city that features restaurants the locals brag about? Restaurants the locals brag about that close up at 9 p.m. on a Saturday night?

    Restaurants the locals brag about that close up at 9 p.m. on a Saturday night during a major golf championship? ::)

    Please stop. You're killing me :D
