I remember seeing something about one of the IOC members going to Sweden for something and being lent a Volvo, and was surprised when at the end of the visit he was asked for the keys back.

Won't Chicago's logo be outdated by the time the Games come around, with that new Giant Phallus building getting the greenlight to be built?

Go Chicago Go

If anyone can corrupt a few officials to make things happen, we're definitely the bidder to do it.

Hey, I mean if Atlanta can get the Olympics, then I think its not very hard for any big city to get it.

I hope the Greater Milwaukee area gets it. Including using Miller Park and Camp Randall for events.
