Chicago was the first city eliminated for hosting the 2016 olympic games.

I think it's hillarious that everybody thought Chicago had it in the bag because Obama and Oprah campaigned for it.

Well one of two (Tokyo being the other). Smart money is on Rio. Never been an Olympics in South America

It is heartening to know that the rest of the world is not under the same spell of idol worship which is gripping the US.

I usually don't say these words, but...THANK GOD!!!!

All the figures being tossed around lately seems to indicate the Olympics are a BUST which always leaves the citizens with a larger debt to pay off.
