    This.

    Happy to see it get to South America for the first time, we can wait a little bit to get another turn when they haven't even had one, haha. Should be cool to have it there though

    I'm from Chicago I'm so bummed about it =_=

    out in the first round of voting... I expected it to come down to chicago and tokyo :/ and tokyo went out second.


    In the long run it just means I won't be going, but I'll still watch it on tv.

    I just thought it was great watching the faces of all the people gathered in Chicago when they announced Rio had won thier bid. I think its far more important to put it in a untouched vinue. I mean if I were an Olymic calibur athlete I wouldn't want to travel down the street for the damn Olymics! Take me to twhere the sexy bodies and hot accents are.
