Something to Smile About
A hush fell over a crowd of thousands of Parisians gathered expectantly outside City Hall today as rival London defeated the French capital in a hotly contested battle to host the 2012 Olympics.There's nothing quite like taking pleasure in other people's pain, especially when those people are the French.
Raindrops began falling just before the announcement, and dejected spectators folded up French flags and streamed away from the square after Paris failed in its third attempt since 1992 to bring the games back to the city, which hosted the Olympics in 1900 and 1924.
