Tempest in a Teacup

Singapore is hosting the IOC session where it will bi decided which city: Paris, NYC, London Madrid or Moscow, will get to host 2012 Olympics. All celebrities, big and small, have found their way to the island. Beckham has arrived, to be joined by Queen Sophia from Spain, Senator Hillary, Jaques Chirac among others.

I am rooting for Paris. Now the transformation is complete. I work for a french firm, root for the french car, the french city, speak the language. Yikes!!!

I am excited. As usual. As in my nature. My colleague doesn't have an opinion. I find it strange. How can one not have an opinion in a competition! When I am watching sports, even though I dont know any of the players in the game, I still make up a preference on the spot. Thats how it is, isn't it?

BTW, the flower in the logo on top right, is Vanda Ms Joaquim, Singapore's National Flower.

Technically, I should support NYC then. Work for a US co. Watch and admire the most hardcore US sports like American Football and Golf and Basketball. I don't have a twang still, but read US history as fervantly as my own.

But unfortunately, Madrid it should be for me. Reasons as follows.
1. Sydney & Atlanta were all awsome in being perfectly done. What was missing was the warmth, the heart. The best olympic games I saw was 1992, Barcelona. Madrid could only be better. (Now c'mon, this is not football, right;) )
2. At the risk of generalisation: Moscow is too cold, Paris is too gay, London is too tightass, and NYC is too dumb. Madrid is too sultry.
3. OK the spaniard babes are the best in the world too, so if I get to visit the Olympics.. I am planning incidentally..., the perks are welcome.

It's been three times now that Paris has been refused -- 1992, 2008 and 2012. "Bizarre" says Eva Longoria's boyfriend and Spurs point guard Tony Parker
