Well, that was embarrassing. I thought the IOC was going to give Chicago the 2016 Olympics on a platter, if you believed the hype here. I think da Mare had already spent the money.
I woke up at 1 AM and caught Chicago's final presentation LIVE to the IOC which, I can say in all candor, was very BORRRRRRRRRR-ING!! None of this would have happened if they'd let me do the videos. No, seriously, I was watching that crap mumbling to myself the whole time. Hey, I didn't write and perform in the winning homecoming skit competition when I was at Duke, not to mention write/produce/perform and WIN Northwestern's May Sing [small group category] two years in a row. So there.
And how about the president's inspirational speech? "Yes, I hope Chicago gets the Olympics so I can walk to the opening and closing ceremonies from my house." Z-z-z-z-z-z.
Way back, when this all started, I learned that there had never been an Olympics in Latin America. So I wondered, why are we even in this thing? Just give it to RIO and let everybody save all that pitch money trying to win something they'll never get. The final nail in the coffin was yesterday when I heard this was Rio's third try. I thought, you're kidding right? How can they NOT win the bid.
Gee, I'm a farking genius apparently.
