Crap, crap, crap. Chicago is out in the first round. I understand Rio, but MADRID? C'mon, Spain had it in `92! And this is the city of broad shoulders, the city that works, the home of blues...and now we really are singing the blues.

Big flippin' belly flop for Chi-town.

What's Oprah going to do on Monday?

Too bummed for a proper Freaky Friday. Today is Failure Friday. Ugh.


  1. I can't believe it. I thought we'd lose to Rio, but in the first round? I'm feeling America hate.

  2. I'm shocked! I was really pulling for Chi-town. Rio would have been one thing, but Madrid seems wrong somehow.

    Do you think Oprah cried?

    I actually used to work with a guy who was on the committee. I haven't talked to him in about a year, but I remember him saying how crazy intense the whole process was. He was excited that they had made it as far as they had, but to come so close and lose it at the end really sucks. Boo.

  3. Oprah cried on Michelle Obama's shoulder. I'm sure of it.

    I understand Rio. It's a beautiful, spirited city. I'm just bummed for my fellow Chicagoans. We're always the damn second city, you know? Well, I guess in this case we were the third! Sucks to be us.

    My friend Kathleen and I were just talking about how cool a job on the Olympics Committee would be. Every city you visited would bring out its best--talk about first class travel!

  4. LOL, I don't have anything to add, but the visual of Oprah crying on Michelle Obama's shoulders? Too funny.
