‘The Game Is Over’: Italy Halts Rome Bid for 2024 Olympics

ABC: Italy suspended Rome’s bid for the 2024 Olympics on Tuesday, forced to pull the plug because of the staunch opposition of the city’s mayor.

Italian Olympic Committee president Giovanni Malago said that he had written to the IOC announcing the decision to “interrupt the candidacy.”

While the letter left open a small possibility for a revival of the bid if there is a change in city government, Malago didn’t hold out much hope.

“Today the game is over. But if someone decides that the game isn’t over it’s not up to us. But today we’re ending the game,” Malago told The Associated Press after his announcement at a news conference. “That’s it.”

    Shit, no wonder he’s mayor.

  2. It’s time they ended the Summer Olympics. Too much drug use. Leave the Winter Olympics. They get a bigger audience, anyway.

  3. They will need new events for European countries.

    It just dawned on me the only part of the Summer O’s I watched was all those nice young well-muscled men in skimpy swim trunks. I must have watched every heat and every final.

  5. @Eugenia…now you’ve done it! You are hereby disqualified from running for elected office. Your comment above would be wielded like a bat by your opponents.

  6. Don’t forget the discus (gay boy) throw off the roofs. It’s always a big crowd pleaser. And watching those females run in their burqas… show any ankle, be stoned on the spot. Such fun!

  7. @KMM, oh crap I’ll have to call out the same hit team Killary uses to get rid of witnesses.

  8. FINALLY! A Gubberment official who realizes what the Olympics really are, a total drain of resources, a disruption of the lives of the citizens, and a money pit that takes forever to pay off.

  9. In the full spirit of diversity and inclusion do away with trials and open up the Olympics to any Tom, Dick, Clotilde, Mohammed, Barach, Jane or Jenner (Bruce or otherwise) who shows up! Eliminate the gender separation and allow everyone and the horse he rode in on to compete equally in every event!
