Well, in case you’ve been living in a cave (God, I hate that expression but I couldn’t think of anything else) or you just don’t care about sports and world politics in general, Rio de Janerio has won its bid to be the 2016 host city for the summer Olympics. As a mid-westerner, obviously I would have preferred Chicago to have been the winner – and honestly, I’m really surprised they didn’t get it.
After all, Brazil is already going to be hosting the 2014 World Cup and only two years later they’ll be hosting the Olympics as well? Come on, let’s not be greedy, guys.
Even though I’m a bit disappointed with the result, the Olympics in Rio is going to be a South American first, and no offense to Chicago, but I’m pretty sure that they can out-party anyone.
