Tomorrow in Redwood City the US Olympic Committee will hear presentations from Olympic hopefuls including Los Angeles; Boston; Washington, D.C; and, yes, San Francisco. The Bay Area's pitch includes a "pop-up" (of course) stadium in Brisbane for the opening and closing ceremonies and an Olympic Village built at the Hunters Point Shipyard. A source told Matier & Ross that the Oakland Raiders and the NFL have participated in talks about building a venue that could do double-duty as an Olympic stadium. [SFGate]
