    You heard it from my mother.

    The olympics fucked up atlanta. That town will never be the same. The same will happen for Chicago if it gets the games. The poor and down trodden will be forced out. While it's great for sports, it's a sad time for the city.

    Wait a sec, do they have a chance, or did they land the games? Help me out here.

    I believe Governor Newsweek cover is in the other corner.

    Edit: Always nice to be an idiot.

    "Chicago's rivals in the 2016 competition likely will include Rio de Janeiro, Madrid, Rome, Tokyo and Prague. Baku, Azerbaijan and Doha, Qatar, improbable dreamers, also may enter the race."

    How does Chicago stack up to Rio de Janerio?! No way, no how.

    Hmmm, can you imagine a gold medal baseball game at Wrigley? Nice job, IOC!

    You mean Toronto's not bidding - yet again - for this one?
