San Diego Tijuana Olympics bid would bring interesting logistics strategy to the busiest border crossing in the world. There are several articles about the early proposal. Much of the entertainment comes from the reader commentary. Here are a few samples…
~ chickletts $10.50, Mexican sodas $ 7.70., churros $ 5.50. I can’t wait!
~ Or think of this scenario. Olympian athlete who trained for years ends up forfeiting due to four hour wait at the border and then was detained by Fatherland Security.
~ As a San Diegan, I hate this idea. The nightmare of the crowds far outweighs any phantom economic benefit. Yes, SD/TJ is one metro area. (It’s the world’s busiest border crossing because of the people who work/live on both sides, TJ’s sewer system empties on the SD side, etc.) But crossing the border for the games would be even more of a disaster than it already is. SD has more problems building a stadium than LA. The issues are endless.
~ While we’re considering idiotic ideas, why not make bull fighting and coqk fighting Olympic events.
~ are school shootings going to be added too?
~ Why would a country that performs so terribly in the Olympics want to host it? Everyone knows that every Mexican who can run, jump, or swim is already over here in the U.S…
~ funny thing is that at their three main sports (Boxing, Soccer and Baseball) Mexico beats the US all the time.
~ Oh, and I’m certain police corruption would instantly be curbed with the prospect of all that foreign money showing up at the same time.
~ I heard that Taco Bell is going to sponsor the Run For The Border Marathon that goes from TJ to San Diego. The problem is that the Mexico team has a few million team members.
~ How about some water sports in the Brown Trout Canal they call the TJ River?
~ Popotla to Oceanside boat racing
