  1. Listen here—cities don't just bid for an Olympics just to throw an expensive party. Maybe that's the case for Sochi, Beijing, Athens and other bid cities with no attention paid to a LEGACY. That won't happen if the Greater Boston Region & Commonwealth of MA host an Olympics. Things need to be fixed in any city, some more than others. If you can marry an Olympic bid with civic improvements to infrastructure while telling a good narative—that is a winning bid for Boston. They are following through all of the necessary steps and with good direction.

Boston Olympics bid fuels visions on Massachusetts future http://www.lowellsun.com/news/ci_24965711/boston-olympics-bid-fuels-visions-mass-future?source=rss_viewed "We have roads that need repair, and those repairs could enhance economic development in a substantial way -- not just hosting the 2024 Olympics, but more importantly, we could change the face of the commonwealth of Massachusetts for half a century, if not more," said Suffolk Construction CEO John Fish, the commission's chairman. Former Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis: "Boston better equipped to handle a major global eve
  3. Not sure what the joke is about 2014 but he thinks Boston is the best U.S. option for 2024. I agree!
  4. Great news for Boston and a potential 2024 Summer Games Bid http://www.gamesbids.com/eng/olympic_bids/future_bids_2016/1216136788.html Wednesday the Massachusetts House of Representatives passed legislation to create an 11-member committee to push forward an initiative to host the 2024 Summer Olympic Games in Boston. A bill was passed during the summer to examine the feasibility of bidding for the Games. According to the Daily Free Press, Massachusetts Rep. Theodore Speliotis said the commission is looking at how the universities and colleges in and surrounding Boston, including Boston Uni
  5. Massachusetts Senate votes to create commission to study feasibility of Massachusetts hosting 2024 Summer Olympics. State House bill S.1623 passes Senate this afternoon 39-0 in favor. Now to the House for a vote and Governor Patrick for his signature. Big news for the 2024 movement in Boston.
  6. The most likely American candidate cities for 2024 seem to be San Francisco, Philadelphia, Boston, Dallas, a potential San Diego/Tijuana joint bid, and Los Angeles, which would be aiming to host its third Olympics since 1932. Boston's efforts are continuing to evolve! http://www.facebook.com/boston2024 @Boston2024 http://olympictalk.nbcsports.com/2013/06/11/usoc-looking-to-whittle-potential-2024-olympic-bid-cities-by-december/
  7. Boston officials “imagine” Olympics at committee meeting Boston’s Joint Committee on Tourism, Arts, and Cultural Development heard testimony Tuesday from citizens and officials advocating for New England to throw its proverbial hat in the ring, as they consider hosting the Games in 2024. “While security is, and will always be, a major concern in any Olympics, our first responders have proven to be more than up to the task. Our Boston police, fire and EMS have proven to be the most dedicated and prepared in the world,” Boston City Councilor Matthew O’Malley said Tuesday. “Imagine soccer matc

  9. Stoked that Los Angeles is throwing their hat in the ring along with Tom Hanks and Magic Johnson. If there's one city that has the balls to pull this off—it's LA! Screw Texas and Oklahoma; Los Angeles is electric and has major plans to tear down their century old convention center if the proposed Farmers Field project moves forward. To all those who count Boston out, this city isn't out. It's merely conducting a feasibity study to show proof with actual figures and findings "yes, it's feasible, or no, it's not feasible".
  10. I'll gladly change the conversation from politics to Boston's hopes for a future Summer Olympic Games. "Like" Boston2024 on facebook & follow the bid effort on twitter! http://www.boston-2024.org @Boston2024 http://www.facebook.com/boston2024
  11. I'm sorry but Dallas 2024 sounds incredibly boring... Yee haw
  12. Being a gold star member like yourself doesn't make anyone elses opinions, including new followers any less viable than yours. This is merely a forum for people who are infatuated with the Olympics to have friendly and interesting discussions. Let the Exploratory Committee do their job and come back with the real facts and well...the back and forth will still be going on here : )
  13. I don't think anyone posting on here has shot down any other city in comparison. I would love if ANY city in the U.S. can play host to an event of this magnitude in our near future. We don't think Boston is God's gift to anything but we are very proud of our city and what it has to offer. Any resident should have pride in the city in which they live. Other cities I would love to see pitch for a games would be Los Angeles, San Diego, Denver, Austin, Miami and Chicago even though they just announced they weren't going to bid again. I think any viable city in our nation should lay the groundwork
