2012 & footy I think that we still have a chance for 2012, even if the stands don't show it. The organizers know that the local people don't make up the entire attendance at the games. Also, Houston will have a majority of the necessary facilities in place by that time, making Houston the cheapest option for the 2012 games. Also, I've heard that Mr. Haulbrook, the soccer chair (and ex Bay Area Youth Soccer Ass'n president, and active member in STYSA) already has everything laid out for the Olympic soccer tournament, including use of venues in Dallas and San Antonio. According to my source, all he's gotta do is plug teams into the schedule. Which to me, seems fairly impressive for a tournament that's 10 years away.
