SORT BY Relevancy
Mirabile dictu! Somehow, the IOC chose Boston over San Francisco, Los Angeles and D.C for the US bid to host the 2024 Summer Games.
It's certianly not a done deal. Entries from many other nations are in the running for that — to be settled in 2017. Apparently that will involve much dining and wining, bribing and cajoling. PR meets politics meets pride.I figure Rome or some other city that's already done this will get it.
Meanwhile, Bostonians aer in two camps. One are the hucksters and boosters, typified by ty the Boston 2024 promoters. On the other side are detractors, including those on No Boston Olympics. Next week's show will have one of the three principals of the latter on.
This time, I'll do my best to present the case for the Olumpics. There's much to overcome on the way to winning the bid. The commonwealth's feasibility study on the bid, which came out in February, details the infrastrtucture, venue, transportation and other issues. The boosters say they have it under coontrol or soon to be.
This week is the pro-side run through. Next week will be the anti one.
Everyone in Boston seems excited about the 2024 Olumbics bid — but not all in a positive way. Last week'a ahow was just Mike presenting the plus side's position. In fairness to them, they are not pretending the city won't have to prove itself in many ways to win the final bid against the several foreign competitors.
Thi time, I'll have Aaron Leibowitz representing No Boston Olympics on to discuss theywhy not of it all.
To the boosters, the city would end up with vastly improved transportation sysatems and other infrastructure and more...all with little or no resulting debt. In faxct a big sales tactic is that only by preparing for a 2024 games will Bosotn make these upgrades.
Listen in for a differing view.
Get Your Game Face On!
Chalk Talk is a weekly live interactive sports talk show. It's not your ordinary show. Here you'll get a unique, yet informative perspective on all things sports and a wide variety of guests. I go beyond the highlights and scores to give you the stories behind the stories.
Filmmaker Deborah Riley-Draper joins me to talk about her upcoming documentary: Olympic Pride - American Prejudice. It takes a look at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin. Most of us know the story of Jesse Owens, but there were 17 other Black athletes competing in those games. This film tells the untold story of the other 17.
The NFL Scouting Combine is over, so who were the most impressive athletes? Were there any surprises good or bad? We'll talk about on Chalk Talk. What about the NBA? We'll take a look at who did or didn't get traded. All of this and more on next week's show.
Looking forward to seeing you online! It's a fun hour of sports you don't want to miss.

Dr. Mark W. Hendrickson, author, adjunct faculty member, economist, and fellow for economic and social policy with The Center for Vision & Values at Grove City College, Pennsylvania, a Christian liberal arts college north of Pittsburgh, to mark the 35th anniversary of the upset victory by the U.S. hockey team over their heavily favored Soviet rivals in the 1980 Winter Olympics. Ever since known as the “Miracle on Ice,” Sports Illustrated named that game “the greatest sports moment of the 20th Century.” Read the article: Remembering the "Miracle on Ice" By Dr. Mark Hendrickson.
Mount Vernon City Councilman Richard Thomas attends the show from the bottom of the first hour to distill the gravitas and relevance of New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli's assertions that inefficiencies and discrepancies revealing deficiencies by Mount Vernon Comptroller Maureen Walker, yet to remedied, continue unmitigated by any action and devoid of even a plan of correction.
At the top of the second hour, at 11:00am, Sisters Judy and Catherine two missionary sisters with the Dominican Sisters of Hope, and colleague Gina Ciliberti, speak to the evolution of the order, the recently inaugurated "new" www.ophope.org website, its 160 plus Catholic Dominican sisters who are committed to living and preaching the Gospel message of hope online, as well as among the seventeen states and Puerto Rico they serve largely in justice, social, healthcare, and education ministries.

The easy part is the snow, but it hides and reveals much. Underlying the white stuff, the ice, the subzero weeks, what does Boston's ability to manage itself say now and beyond?
Chums around the country and beyond ask us how we are faring, whether our roof can take it all, and more. We can report good — as in no power outages, we have heat, water, power and internet. Outside that small fence, it's not so good.
The city's T, as in subway, trolley, commuter rail and bus have been totally shut, then mostly shut, and running only on the few underground lines. Workers, students, shoppers and plain folk are back in previous centuries, at the mercy of the elements.
The mayor and governor have avoided blaming each other for various failures, likely knowing there is plenty of shame and naming to share. Yet there will be reckonings, as businesses tabulate many millions of losses, schools calculate federal dollars, required dates, vacations and such, and ordnary citizens wonder whether they can trust Boston to provide basic services.
This is the big town that won the US bid for the 2024 Winter Olympic Games. Granted blizzards then are extremely unlikely, but what does all of his say of its transportation system? Can students' [parents rely on the city to keep its skeds? If the city can't haul away snow, i9s it ready for more acute emergencies?
