At this point, Boston and Rome are the only two cities that have officially decided to bid.  The International Olympic Committee will make their decision in 2017.  Other cities are expected to throw their hats in the ring before that decision is made. The U.S. Olympics Committee says that 70 to 75% of the events would be held on university campuses. How would you feel about the Olympics coming to New England?
