They Lost!

Chicago loses in the first round. Only 18 votes out of 94? Can you believe it? Chicago Out After First Round of Voting - Chicago Tribune.

Woo hoo! Yes, we will be celebrating the loss at our house. We've gone back to news free, because you know they are going to days of analysis of why we didn't get it, but I can't wait to see Mayor Daley's reaction. You know he's going to have say something ridiculous.

I'm with you. Just heard Rio got the bid. I'm happy for them. It's about time Latin America got it. Yay!

@ Patricia - Yes! But I'm sure we'll hear it analyzed to death in the coming days, weeks. Oh well, at least we don't have to deal with it.

I guess Obama's "rock star" appearance didn't help! Hee-hee!!

Even Oprah lost her touch :-)

Glad Rio got it especially once I found out they were ready for it unlike Chicago.

I think the world is just sick of the U.S.!

For chuckles, go to the article about the defeat in the Trib and read the comments online. Hysterical!! Well, it's good for a few laughs anyway.

I love Chicago, but Rio sounds like much more fun. I was up reading way too late last night. Turned on the TV at 1am and saw the Chicago presentation.

I really do not think it would of made a difference who went to promote. We really were not in the running. It was just an Honorable Mention,lol
