Today Chicago came one step closer to hosting the 2016 Summer Olympics by winning the right to represent the United States in the bidding process. The major competition seems to be Tokyo, Madrid and Rio. My parents have already announced that they are going nowhere near the city if Chicago does win the bid, but I don't think that will stop me. I plan on attending. I think it's a great thing for the city and when they finally make the announcement in 2009, I'm sure it will be Chicago.
