Wow, closing at the Verona Arena.

Pretty sexy concept.

Yeah, sounds sexy and the Arena is a more compact one than the Colosseum in Rome; but I fear the IOC leans towards Sweden since Sweden has NOT hosted a full Olympics, much less a winter one, since 1912.  Plus, the last Scandinavian WOGs were in 1994.

Thank you Captain Obvious for that tidbit. But that’s of course is Sweden actually wants these Winter Olympics ITFP.

I wish the IOC good luck forcing a city (and a country) which has repeatedly made clear they don't want the games to host them, then.

I've grown to like the Italian bid a bit more, if they can manage to pull it off.  Sweden would be the favorite only if they can pull off a miracle on top of a home on top of a prayer.  We gotta root for Italy to succeed as the fall back, and even then hope that they can be the fall back.

...that's exactly what I keep thinking.
