This is it.

As I write this, we are just a few short hours from the announcement on who will host the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games. I have been in favor of our bid since it was first brought up in a passing manner a couple years ago.

Everyone agrees that Chicago has put together the best bid (technically and financially) an American City has ever done. No one can argue with the star power behind our bid: Oprah and the Obamas are truly a force to be reckoned with.

I have many friends who do not want the games in Chicago, they think it will be a nightmare for us for the 3 weeks of the games, some are afraid it will increase our likelihood of being a terrorist target. I cannot refute those charges.

Fingers crossed America (et al).
