    Re: Chicago is not getting the olympics

    So this was a very last-ditch effort by the Obama family?

    I really do respect that they made the effort to lobby personally. I like the commitment that it showed.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    Re: Chicago is not getting the olympics

    Rio was the favorite going in because South America had never hosted an Olympics

    I actually thought that odds-makers had Chicago as the favorite, even though Rio might deserve it more.
