    I think Rio's going to get them, myself.

    I'm pissed off about how much of my tax money went into this failed bid but I'm actually a little relieved that we didn't get them otherwise. That **** would have ****ed the grass up at soldier field and screwed it up for football season.

    I was not aware of that, so I hope it happens this time. I guess Rio would not be so bad, I have friends in that area of Brazil (San Paulo).

    Does Rio count as "latin America"?

    Yes, it is part of Latin America.

    Did you have any qualms with Bush attending the last Olympics on your taxpayer dime?

    I think a president attempting to seek to help America get some dough and open jobs can be seen only as a good thing. But that's me....

    My comment had nothing to do with Obama. I could care less about that ****.

    I'm from Chicago. I reside here. We spent 48 million on a waste of time in a town where a ton of the inner city schools are literally falling apart.

    Yes, but the Olympics would have been a nice distraction for you all from the Cubs failing again.

    I'm a Sox fan. The Cubs failing is pleasurable for me.
