Athens!

Frankly, I think they should make Greece the permanent home of the Summer Olympic Games. Then they can rotate the winter games, which cost much less, around the world. Greece is going to show the world what the Olympics is all about and they should reside there after the Beijing games in 2008.

But, from the list I voted for Moscow. After the US pulled that boneheaded boycott of the games in 1980, we owe the Russians. If they can afford it, the games should go there.

The Olympics would then dwindle to nothing, and the exitement of the Games would die down and they would be boring forever. The point of the Olympics would be useless.

Its a very thick headed statement. What keeps the Games running is the constant change of environment and the new and exiteing spin each host city and their respective nations bring to the Games. This woulden't be the case if each Games were held in Athens.

They would also loose their special vibe about them. It would become a common thing in Athens, and Athens 2004 wouldent be special.

Athens 2004 has givin Greece it's chance to shine for the first time since 1896, so why not let other cities and countries have the same chance.

Berlin's Olympic stadium stinks. Hamburg would have a brand-spanking new one for half the price of Berlin's roof.
