I still think it was dumb, but Nick Vehr once came and gave a presentation at a corporate event i was at and it actually wasn't that far-fetched that they could host the Olympics. Now, it WAS incredibly far-fetched to think they could actually win it.
Vehr used to talk up the idea that they could actually host the games, but I figured his goal was to improve the profile of the region. If their bid could have even gotten considered in the later rounds, it would have been good for the city. Sure, it was totally crackpottish, but why not drum up a little optimism. God knows Cincinnati has precious little of it.
