Like any good politician at heart, Chelsea Piers founder and frat brother to the president Roland Betts is keeping his options open vis-a-vis the 2016 Olympics. No word on whether this is the official city line, but he told an intrepid fellow Yalie upon the occasion of his state-sanctioned trip to Torino this month:
We are still giving serious thought to bidding for the Games in 2016 for New York, so it's important to keep touching the IOC bases.Don't tell us you threw away all your cynicism with the 2012 bid. You might have to dig it out and dust it off again one of these days.
