Carried over from the World Cup discussion:

maybe we should do the olympics??? I would do it...and I think guys here would too....

Sports would include:
-Track + Field

(The Summer Olympics in ________, _________ 2005)

To submit a city bid select a photo containing one of that citys airports same system will apply as counting the world cup stuff...)I am going to carry this over to another post and maybe a email me if you want to help since you started this whole thing(

and...: I did a little work...threw a webpage togather really quickly that we can move the games to- (information wise ie. game scores, standings etc. ) But discussion will remain in this form...Anyway if you are interested take a look at :

and then email me at

and let me know so I know if I should keep building the webpage (ie. make it look a lot better- i seriously just spent only 2-3 minutes for what you see)

Sounds like a very good idea! I'd like to create a team....


How do you want to do the track and field / swimming competitions?!? Soccer was clear... 11 players, the hits counted. But how athletics and swimming?!

Still, I'd keep up this idea!

Since it is a very beautiful city and the weather isn't too hot in the summer, I submit a bid for Calgary, Alberta, Canada (which, BTW, was the host of the 1988 winter olympics).

Munich, Germany

It's a city that is well known internationaly. With some already has an Olympic Park for the events to take part in as well as a brand new stadium north of city (for FIFA World Cup 2006). It is very attractive and tourist friendly for those who are from out of town spectators for the games. A nice night life, vote for Munchen!!!

Cleared for the option...

The " Summer Olympics" should be NY City/metro area. We have 4 airports (JFK, EWR, LGA and Islip) so get almost all types and models of commercial pax and freigher a/c, many international airlines and almost all USA based major airlines and many LLC's (Islip has WN service). The NYC area provided plenty of hotels and other entertainment.
The spotting events could be difficult, especially at EWR. Other events could easliy be held and could include: the luggage transfer relay race, the marathon - to the airports in traffic, spot as many different airlines and aircraft in 1 hour, name as many airlines serving an airport in 20 minutes event, the connecting flight sprint and middle distance races, the quickest to get through TSA security race and others, the find the cheapest flight match, the connect between the airports relay race, the patiance during delays from summer thunderstorms event, an event to see how long one can spot at any airport without being harrassed by the police event, and so on.
