Is Boston Really Ready to Host the Olympics?
The city's revised 2024 Olympics bid was criticized as incomplete, particularly because it lacked some important financial details.
Suppose your teacher told you that an assignment was due by a certain day. You stayed up half the night, produced a nice-looking package a day before the deadline and patted yourself on the back for handing it in early.
But when the teacher looked at it, much of the assignment had not been completed.
That was the anticlimactic feeling here Monday, when Boston 2024, the private group organizing the city’s bid to host the 2024 Summer Olympics, put out a much-anticipated report that Gov. Charlie Baker of Massachusetts had asked for by Tuesday.
Boston 2024 held a briefing for boosters and the news media Monday morning at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. It gave out gorgeously produced briefing materials, and officials later briefed the governor.
