I share your sentiment. But I would be very surprised if the IOC did not award it to South Korea. This is South Korea's third consecutive bid for the Winter games and there seems to be a desire to spread the games around. I'd much rather see it in a country with a tradition and passion for many winter sports, hence my preference for Germany this time. South Korea has many top short track speed skaters and of course Yuna, but what about skiing, bobsled, luge, ski jumping, hockey, etc...? I really wonder if those events will be filled.

paris failed for 1992/2008/2012 2012 being the most painful. detroit failed 7 straight times if i'm not mistaken, swedish WOG bids were rejected six straight times. it can happen. not saying it will but it has happened. there's a precedence.

^ Same here! :( :eek: We are lucky to have access to Universal Sports, but I still have always preferred ABC's skating & Olympic coverage to NBC's.
