I take it all back. Turns out that the IOF has extremely good judgement after all :)
Fantastic choice! congrats Scotland!
True, I'm not a fan of the concept, but I wish you and your cronies all the best in making it a big success.
For those of you who don't know Graeme personally, this is typical self deprecating humor.
I thought to myself. " I've heard that line before."
The IOF was probably encouraged to see that you guys have finally figured out how to have a real summer.
I still can’t quite believe it. I was absolutely convinced that Paris was a shoe-in because of the Olympics connection...
The decision about new sports for the Olympics in 2024 will be made in 2019, so a 2022 WOC serves no purpose there.
EricW - yup, you shouldn't take what I say too literally. Even this post :)
Swampfox - summer indeed. We also have air for the athletes to use.
I noticed on golf telecasts that Carnoustie (the Open, next to an O map?) and Gullane (Scottish Open, "on" one of Graeme's maps) were even browner than normal. The positive implications of this didn't occur to me, until Swampfox's post.
I think congratulations are in order for the chutzpah of nominating for this task, as well as for the nomination success.
