    I was actually starting to root against Chicago. That whole Oprah/Obama high and mighty crap was nauseating this week. Especially Oprah. I'd like to break her teeth.

    come to think of it no- I was thinking of the '56 in Melbourne....Rio is close to the same time zone as EST- so there wouldn't be too much TV delay....

    I actually think it worked against Chicago for Obama/Oprah to go there.

    I don't like Oprah either. But isnt there a better way to express this? Because I know you don't mean this.

    I've been to the Olympics four times....Chicago would've been a hell hole to hold the Olympics.
