Boston. It would make for a very classy Olympics. The city has the infrastructure and for an American city is awesomely beautiful in the summertime.

No for Boston, because that would just boost their already overinflated egos even more.

the U.S. is not the world. The world is a lot bigger than the U.S. Be more considerate and quit sniffin your own ass. Why always a U.S. get this or that Olympics? Maybe the Special Olympics!?

Seattle would be a great place to host the Olympics - summer or winter. We have next to perfect weather in the summer, and local mountain ranges would play great host to winter sports! That, and I think Seattle would be a great representative for the US.

Houston, Philadelphia, Other, Indianapolis and Chicago for me. Houston and Philadelphia have the size and the capabilities to have the Olympics, plus could use some additional international exposure. Indianapolis has some good sport facilites. I also voted for Chicago itself as a protest vote, because it is still a better pick for the Olympics then the city that eventually won.

I choose SF because it would be nice to see some major development. It would make sense as the 49ers or Raiders could use whatever stadiums get built afterwards. It would have to be in very late summer though as SF has an indian summer.

Imagine how cool it would be:
