Ely goes all out for the 2016 Olympic bid


Ely kind of spoiled their semi-funny April Fools' joke yesterday by announcing it a day early. Otherwise we might be more entertained.

Either way, we can't pretend they didn't go all out for a couple laughs pretending to go for the 2016 Olympic bid. They even held a fake press conference and have a full website up and running.

We have to admit we laughed a little when we saw one of the dudes wearing flannel during the official announcement. When asked why it should be in Ely, they had a one word answer: Sarajevo. No one knew about Sarajevo before the Olympics and Ely is easier to say.
