If it's 2028, it has to go back through the Cali legislature. Garcetti does not want that at all.

Most experts think Paris will host first followed by LA in 2028. Los Angeles can do fine if they can figure out something to do about their god-awful traffic over the next decade. I was a student at UCLA in 1984 when LA hosted the Olympics and that was great. Actually everyone was so nervous about traffic even then that a lot of people left town and the freeways were great. I doubt that will be the case this time around.

Eric Garcetti might be trying to take a page out of Mitt Romney's pagebook and parlay his Olympic aspirations into a presidential run. Of course Romney was CEO of the Salt Lake City Olympics but Garcetti is pretty much calling the shots in LA right now as far as the Olympics go.

If Paris doesn't host in 2024, it will be the longest Europe has gone without hosting the Olympics. Paris is pretty insistent on 2024.

If you have a decent home or condo you'd probably be able to pay for a nice vacation and pocket the difference if you put your place on Airbnb in a city as expensive as LA during such a high-demand time. Assuming Airbnb is a thing in the future.

Good. Acceptable time zone but still physically far away.

So the U.S. won't have to pony up any $$$ for the CA games.

Nice!
