    Five candidate cities for 2012 Summer Olympics

    London, Madrid, New York, Paris and Moscow remained in the running to host the world's biggest sporting event as the IOC on Tuesday announced the cities on the short list for the 2012 games. Havana, Leipzig, Istanbul and Rio were discarded after failing to convince the IOC's evaluation commission that they had the capacity, finance and political backing to stage the complex and expensive event.

    It would be a total mess to have it in NYC. They could barely hold World Cup soccer in 1994.

    London or Paris.

    Paris should get it. A great chance to redeeem themselves for screwing up like dogs in 1924 in Rugby. I'm in earnest sevens will be added to the program soon.
