Still think it's a crazy idea to host a World Cup in 3 countries, especially after what happened in 2002. It was FIFA who said that it was a hassle to travel between Japan and South Korea.

I get that these countries are not separated by waters, but to travel from Mexico to Canada kinds of feel the same doesn't it?

Vancouver should step in to replace Montreal. That would be a nice destination for the World Cup.

As a native Atlantan, from being born at Crawford Long to graduating from Georgia State, let me state that there is no worse city to host a major sporting event than Atlanta. I'm stunned at how many times they can sucker people into believing that. And there is no worse stadium owner to receive such a benefit than Arthur "tear down a historic church for my stadium's parking lot" Blank.
