Fail

Better luck next time, Chicago.

Chicago, Illinois, has been eliminated from hosting the 2016 Olympics, the International Olympic Committee announced Friday.

update: or as I heard somewhere else, “The Ego has Landed”. Nice way to put it considering we decided to throw out Commander-in-Chief into the mix.

I’d say that’s a bit of wasted prestige. But that’s just me…

    Feel sorry for people of Chicago, etc., would have helped the economy and all that, and SA was overdue for an Olympics, so I’m happy for them even if I’m not so sure Rio has the infrastructure to put on a decent games. But part of me is SO GLAD Chicago didn’t get it. We would have had 2 solid weeks of NON-STOP Obamamania. What is Michell and the kids wearing today? What sporting venues are on for today? What restaurant did they visit and what did they have to eat? Ad nauseam. Would have been hard to take.

    With the horrendous crime in Rio, I can’t imagine what visitors to the Olympics there will be in store for.
