November 13 is fast approaching and, in a way, it might be the day that sports organizers and sports owners are dreading. Calgary voters will go to the polls, in a non-binding referendum, and decide if they want to help fund the Calgary 2026 Winter Olympics bid.
The Olympics, whether it is the summer or winter version, is a hyped television show that lasts about two weeks which brings out the rah rah nationalism that is a major part of the presentation.

The International Olympic Committee is looking for an area that will have no problem paying off a debt of billions of dollars or loonies or euros or yen in exchange for the opportunity to host an Olympics.
