Chicago NOT Hosting the 2016 Summer Olympics

Well, I am definitely not as disappointed as I thought I would be. I don't know if a part of me never really wanted to Olympics, or a part of me knew we never really had a chance.

Congratulations Rio!

Chicago Out, Rio In -
The 2016 Olympics are going to Rio de Janeiro, putting the games in South America for the first time.

Rio beat surprise finalist Madrid in the last round of voting.

Chicago was knocked out in the first round -- in one of the most shocking defeats ever handed down by the International Olympic Committee -- and Tokyo was eliminated in the second round.
