IOC just loves NYC!

olympics.jpgRest easy, Mike B. For trusty AP today can report that the International Olympic Committee, which was coddled in NYC this week, will leave town with “a very, very good feeling about this bid,” according to IOC boss Peter Ueberroth.

Certainly sounds like a lock to us. The AP even mentions that the IOC lads, who have already gotten the same treatment in London and Madrid, will next go to Moscow and Paris where, surely, no bid will taste as sweet.

Fishbowl suggests the AP try challenging a puff quote and the guy who gave it. Because the IOC bid for New York is hanging in the balance now that the West Side stadium bid has been thrown into turmoil. Paris has better facilities. The Russkies will make their subway run on time. The IOC has been investigated for corruption. And everyone but your reporter knows it.
