Congratulations, Tokyo!

Woke up this morning to find a friend on my Facebook feed congratulating Tokyo for winning its bid to host the 2020 Olympics.  Which means I was wrong the other day.  That's fine.  I've been wrong before, I'll be wrong again.  I'm just happy I didn't put any money on Madrid.

This will be huge news here in Japan this week.  Just the announcement inspired a TV show my wife and I watched last night where a panel of celebrities discussed whether or not Tokyo would get to host the Olympics.  Their conclusion, unsurprisingly, was, "Yes, Tokyo is the best candidate and therefore will win."

Well.  Here we go.
