Is There a More Unfit City than Rio to Host the Olympics

Is There a More Unfit City than Rio to Host the Olympics

Today Jason Day added himself to the grocery list of players who have dipped out of the olympics in Rio this summer. All these athletes who refuse to go to Rio are claiming the Zika virus as the reason, a valid reason none the less.

But this leads me to ask why in the world is the olympics being held in Rio? Like when the heads of the IOC get together to they just pick a country name out of a hat? There is no way in the World that Rio was the best option to host the Olympics. Yes I understand the Olympics are a global game and should give all countries a chance to host but in reality there are only a solid 8 countries that the World can count on to host the games without there being an issue of disease, readiness, and political stability. 

The Government of Rio is in shambles right now, they can't even pay their police and fire fighters who have said they will quit if they do not get paid. If I'm an NBA owner there is no chance I'm allowing one of my star players to go to Rio to compete.

Just overall poor planning.

Also does the logo remind anyone else of something ;)
