2014 can be a golden year if we unite for the Games – Scott Douglas From newsle.com

There is nothing quite like a bit of healthy competition to bring out the best in us, eh? That’s never more evident than in sport and business, where striving for greater performance can be the difference between gold and silver – or profit and loss.

As rivalry goes, they don’t come much fiercer than the competition between Edinburgh and Glasgow.

So, when the Commonwealth Games start in Glasgow (323 days, three hours, 39 minutes and 38 seconds to go at the time of writing) what’s in it for the capital?

After all, didn’t we lose that particular competition waaaay back in 2004 when the Dear Green Place was given the nod over Auld Reekie as Scottish city of choice to pitch for the games?
