#Boston2024: Coolest Promo Video Ever for the Worst Idea Ever

Okay, so maybe not the worst idea ever. I’m not among the people who thinks that an Olympic Games in Boston would utterly ruin the city; I think there are a lot of good things that would come with it. On the other hand, I come down definitively on the HELL NO side when I think about adding the traffic and security concerns of the Olympics to an already overcrowded, relatively small, city.
That aside: check out the beginning! You guys, I know that grey horse! I’ve jump judged for him!
The rider playing Paul Revere is Andy Cook, who I’ve also jump judged for and who I’m pretty sure I did a course walk with at one point, since he sometimes works with my old trainer from Massachusetts.
Awesome video. I hope it doesn’t work.
(That said, the equestrian events are one of the few things I think would go resoundingly well for Boston. The USET, after all, was based in Hamilton, MA for many years, and there are two Advanced courses a short distance from the city at Groton House and Ledyard, though both would obviously need some serious upgrades.)
