I'm voting for Cleveland. Or Buffalo. They could both use the help.

I voted Chicago. LA already hosted an olympics and the city really lacks character.

I voted LA, only 'cause I hate Chicago. I feel that crooked ass mayor deserves a kick in the arse. My feeling is based on his midnight destruction of Meigs field, a General Aviation airport that had already received federal funding and his idea was to turn it into a public park.

That is only one instance, he probably raises the bar for crooked politicos.

Chi town has great nite life without as much botox. I would rather go to Chicago to watch sports.

It's too expensive..........I'm sure someone will now point me to a link that shows the Olympics bring in more money than it costs to build/operate/tear down.
