Chicago 2016!

Holy cow, Chicago is in the running for the 2016 Olympic Games! The US Olympic committee has accepted the nomination. The international committee will make a final decision of Chicago, Madrid, Prague, Rio de Janeiro, Rome, or Tokyo in 2009.

I would totally take a month off for that.

Let's all take the month off and party in Beijing.

Nah, the Chinese nationalist streak is a bit of a downer. If I want a "party Olympics" I'd vote for Madrid or Rio.

Being in an olympic town isn't all it's cracked up to be. Vancouver's getting the winters in 2010, and all you hear is "vision 2010" this and "Future, 2010" that. There's a hideous clock that counts down the days untill the olympics start, and restaurants whose names include the phonemes "olymp" are being forced to change their name for copyright reasons.

My Mom lives in the far suburbs (I live in central IL) so it would be pretty cool to be able to go to Olympic events (not cheap) and stay somewhere nice (that is cheap)!

Of course that means no OD #13 that summer! But there maybe time for a game or two that summer!

For lucky OD 13 and the Olympics, I'd definitely run a Chicago game. Fortunately, I have almost nine years to plan it out. :)
