Boston is on the shortlist of potential U.S. host sites for the 2024 Olympic Games. (The others: Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.) The Boston bid is being backed by a large group of business and political leaders and if successful, could bring some events to Central Massachusetts locales (Perhaps rowing on Lake Quinsigamond?) With the 2016 Games scheduled for Rio de Janeiro and the 2020 Games in Tokyo, there's a good chance the 2024 Games will come back to the Western Hemisphere. Hosting the Olympics would boost the region's profile as well as business, but also cost billions of dollars to produce. Is all the money and effort worth it to host the world's athletes and thousands of others for less than a month? Please vote in this week's Flash Poll and add a comment:
Would Massachusetts be an ideal site for the 2024 Olympic Games?
