My almost-hometown of Chicago (I was born next door in Oak Park and lived until I was 27 in Illinois) may be the host of the 2016 Olympics, it was announced today!
The "group of [competing] bidders [is] expected to include Madrid, Prague, Rome, Rio de Janeiro and Tokyo."
Wow. I think that's very cool. I hope they win -- I'd go! My girls would be 13 years old, that would be fun! At least it's in a city that I'd know my way around, unlike the ones I went to in Seoul, Albertville, Barcelona, and even Atlanta!
