Mike Lupica: Shooting from the Lip

New York Daily News:

From the NYC2012 Olympic Bid Book:

"At a time when the city is rebuilding and re-imagining the possibilities for the future, the prospect of hosting the Olympic Games has united New Yorkers in defining a shared vision for the city's longterm development."

Mike Lupica:

"This is known as a lie. And a cynical attempt to somehow link the events of 9/11 to a sports event that would be staged 11 years later."

Readers, keep in mind that Ratner's arena is the proposed gymnastics venue and that the Mayor Bloombery and Deputy Mayor Doctoroff may have sunk NYC's chances of holding the Olympics by courting controversy on two fronts.
