Nobody Wants To Host The 2022 Olympics
Geege Schuman stashed this in Olympics

Especially now that Qatar has the 2022 World Cup.
It's just too expensive to run an Olympics.
There are only two healthy bids: Almaty, Kazakhstan, and Beijing, China. One's an oil-rich state ruled by a president-for-life, and the other's, well, China. That's no coincidence. With the Sochi games raising the bar to an absurd $51 billion, hosting the Olympics no longer looks like a winning proposition. The failed and aborted 2022 candidacies all have one thing in common: When actual citizens are allowed to have a say, they say they don't want the Olympics.
Ha ha ha ha HA!!
PROS: Johnny Manziel.
They have a point there.
