The old razzle-dazzle just didn’t work this time.
Chicago, not only lost its bid for the 2016 Summer Games, it was crushed.
It seemed obvious going in that Rio would win, but who would have thought Chicago would be the first one out?
A solid second place, but the city didn’t deserve to be over and out in a flash.
I enjoyed a brief vacation in Chicago a couple of weeks ago and I’m here to tell you I thought it was a wonderful place.
While it was not my first visit, I had one of the best big-city experiences in my life.
