Go Vancouver!

Today is the day that the International Olympic Committee decides on and announces the venue for the 2010 Winter Olympics. The three final candidates are Vancouver, Canada; Salzburg, Austria; and Pyeongchang, South Korea.

As I've written before (here and here), I think this should be an easy decision. Vancouver is friendly, clean, inexpensive, and has perhaps the most beautiful natural setting of any major city in the world. It also happens to have one of the world's three largest ski resorts an hour and a half north in Whistler.

The IOC announces its decision at 0841 Pacific Time today. If you're in Canada, you can watch the ceremony on CBC, CBC Newsworld, TSN, CTV, Global BC, and probably the Weather Channel for good measure. (GamesBids.com has a complete schedule for the day's events here.)
