Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti wants to throw L.A. in the ring for consideration to host the summer olympics eight years from now. Atlanta hosted the Games in Summer 1996, and both Chicago and New York have attempted since then. Garcetti told reporters, “I think a lot of people are asking, ‘Who would ever want to bid for the Games these days? We know we could do a Games that would be profitable, just like they were in 1984 when we helped save the Olympic movement.
