Vegas 2020

What are your thoughts on the recent outburst of a Vegas 2020 bid? It seems like the bid committee did this the wrong way...

About a week from now, we'll probably all have forgotten there even was a Vegas bid. Complete and total non-entity.

This may have already appeared on SSC, but on the attached link is a rendering of how the Las Vegas Olympic stadium would've looked --like a twin to Durban's Moses...stadium.

The image by itself won't reproduce.

I know it's just a fantasy render, but it looks from that image like they were proposing a stadium locale right on the strip - that's down around Luxor way, isn't it?

Well, I guess legacy wouldn't have been a problem. Just cover it over after the games and voila, you habe a new Olympic-themed casino!

It was supposed to be behind the Mandalay Bay.

Yaknow, the Titanic-themed casino never got off the ground...so to speak.

When "Vegas 2020" announced their intentions, didn't the intial article say that the "main Olympic complex" was suppose to be in the suburb of Henderson? And nothing was mentioned about the Strip, other than other sites "in the Las Vegas area". I would think that an Olympic Stadium right behind the strip would be a focal point of any proposed story. Unless this is just some fantasy render that's out there.

A Vegas Olympics is really appealing. I think they would be visually stunning.

Of course, there's bigger American cities but I've got to admit, a Vegas games really does appeal. And those stadium renders looked pretty good.

After the athletes have competed they can paaaartay!

Also, getting ahead of myself, the opening ceremony could used imagery from the UNDER-APPRECIATED CLASSIC 'Showgirls' -- Crystal Connors could do a special Olympic dance number as Nomi Malone bumps 'n' grinds on stage. Aw well, it'll never happen but I really want it to. lol
