    I don't think I would really be that interested in hosting the Olympics. I remember after the last Olympics what a fortune it had cost London.We would at least have enough lanes for the cycling events.

    The U.S. Olympic Committee is asking Seattle, Portland and 33 other cities if they are interested in bidding to host the 2024 Summer Games.

    The USOC sent letters to the mayors of those cities Tuesday to gauge interest in a potential bid to bring the Summer Olympics back to the country for the first time since 1996.

    "Our objective in this process is to identify a partner city that can work with us to present a compelling bid to the IOC and that has the right alignment of political, business and community leadership," USOC CEO Scott Blackmun said in the letter.
