Chicago doesn't get any love from IOC
The International Olympic Committee eliminated Chicago as the host city for the 2016 Summer Olympics today. Chicago got the fewest number of votes in the first round and was eliminated. Not sure why. Was it anti-american sentiment? Obama and others went to make the plea for the games to come to Chicago and nothing.
It would have been amazing to have the games that close but it was not to be. I look forward to interviews with members to see why they voted the way they did.
