Jets Stadium and the 2012 Olympics

Now that the proposed West Side Jets stadium appears dead, I think it's time for New Yorkers and Americans to acknowledge something. Whether or not the stadium was approved, New York was not going to get the 2012 Olympics. It was a great selling point for the stadium, sure. And yes, Mayor Bloomberg would have loved to have seen his daughter compete at games staged in New York. But Paris has been a heavy favorite to host the 2012 games for years, it was the favorite before the stadium vote, and it's still the favorite after the stadium vote.
