#1 As someone who stood in Daley Plaza only to find out Chicago would not be hosting the boondoggle in 2016, it warms my heart and triggers my "I told ya so" reflex. I have gone out of my way to travel to the last 2 Summer Olympics cities about 2 months before each of them on the premise that these cities would never look better than prior to a host city event... I avoided Rio based on the calculus of crime and Zika. No doubt in my mind Chicago would have been a "corruptapaloosa" but I am confident we would have showed real well and maybe given the gangs a reason to stop shooting at each other for a couple of weeks.

#2 Dunno. Could revive some of the original emotions the Greeks had. You know, like the original Marathon.

set some hurdles out with some skirmishers, form a thin phalanx with shot put, javelin, archers behind them. Sprinters on the wings to hold the flank or pursue. Hold the regatta teams near to the coast to prevent being flanked and/or resupply by water. Not sure what to do with the meterball players. Maybe have them flop around pretending to be casualties, garnish sympathy or something.

#3 I guess he wants the competition to stay away so he has a better chance for a Gold?

#4 I don't think he's telling the competition to stay away, but the spectators.
