    IF Chicago gets the Olympics...

    How many of you think you will try to go? It would be pretty cool having the Games in our backyard...especially because a certain local talent could be playing for our Men's National BB team.

    I know its very early, but how many of you out there would try to go if they got the bid?

    Re: IF Chicago gets the Olympics...

    I'll take the family and head over to Madison to watch the cycling events but I doubt if we would venture to Chicago for any of the other events.

    I would not want such a pure and unadulterated event such as the olympics tainted in any way....

    Re: IF Chicago gets the Olympics...

    I would no doubt go. I've made many of day trips to Wrigley, so why not one for the Olympics?

    Re: IF Chicago gets the Olympics...

    I would definitely try to go. How often do you get to witness an Olympics?

    Also, I love Chicago.


    There was one?
