What city would be a good canidate to host a olympics in, lets say 2024

My Choices:
Chicago- THey wanted it so I would knock them out of the choices
Houston- Large City with areas to build large venues


but the City I would love to see host the olympics is.....

Detroit-a Great American city that is Dying. I would love to see The billions of Dollars that Olympics bring pumped into that city.


What cities do you think Should Host the 2024 Olympics?
My Choice for the 2020 olympics is between Johanesburg, Dubai, or Baghdad

Dallas. You have SO many HUGE sports arenas there including the New Cowboys Stadium. So the city wouldn't have to worry about securing funds for building arenas. They could focus on other things like... I don't know... public transportation. The city is also very spread out and has an enormous international airport so the logistics would work out quite nicely.

Of course I'll be biased and say DC. There's enough sports venues and the metro can handle lots of people. Without being biased I'd say Seattle (great summer weather), San Diego (again great weather), Denver (all around nice city), Minneapolis (good summer weather as well), or Philly.

The problem with Dallas is Dallas. Why on earth would anyone want to go to a summer event in that oppressive heat?

This has got to be a joke. Dallas is oppressively hot in the summertime. Do you want all the athletes to pass out from heat exhaustion?

Not to mention the lack of scenery in the area...
