Olympics in Chicago (Pt. I)

Chicago has made it to the final three American cities up for consideration for the 2016 Olympics (2016 - I shudder to think that far in the future). The three cities are Chicago, L.A. and San Fran. Insiders say Chicago's bid is very strong and might have the best chance, and that LA sucks. *

Once they pick a city, the USOC has to then decide if they even want to put a bid up for consideration with the IOC.

Since I was a kid I've wanted to work for the IOC, or be involved with the Olympics in some way. Maybe if Chicago wins, I can finally get my chance.

* OK, I made that part up. But I bet somebody on the USOC thinks it is true...

I distinctly remember Mary Decker's bad shaggy perm at the LA Games in '84 and when she pretended to be tripped once she realised she was going to get her ass whipped by a South Afrian midget wearing no shoes.

Plus Decker had really bad clingy red outfits. It is at that moment, I realised I was more interested in the Men's Decathlon.
