The Perfect Host for the 2024 Games

Sara Germano, writing for the Wall Street Journal:

With revenue-sharing quibbles between the USOC and the IOC resolved earlier in May, America’s next summer Olympics could come as soon as 2024, and the Journal has done some scouting for the next perfect host. It’s a sports-crazed town that hasn’t welcomed a Games before, and, what’s more, it has some of the highest Olympics TV ratings in the country. The Games of the XXXIII Olympiad should be held in…Milwaukee.

The article is more than a bit tongue-in-cheek (it’s OK—we Wisconsinites are used to being mocked by spectators on the coasts), but wouldn’t it be something? I’m sure Milwaukee would put on a hell of games.
