Dear IOC....

Dear International Olympic Committee:

It has come to my attention that the fine city of Chicago was eliminated from the running to host the 2016 Olympic Summer Games, and that instead you have chosen to go with Rio. I understand South America has never hosted an Olympic Game before, but really, you passed up on Chicago??? Really?! Chicago is an amazing city, focused on all types of sports. We have several complexes already and would need to do minimal construction. Plus, as an added bonus, the city is situated on beautiful Lake Michigan. It makes me wonder why you dropped us, first nonetheless. I cannot believe you dropped us before Toyko, no offense Japan.

I felt we had a strong campaign and made quite the effort. Is it because we don't have women that walk around in this:
I see how this would make you lean towards Brazil, however I feel if you had seen this, you would have changed your mind:Conservative, right?! That way we would not offend other countries, like say in the Middle East. Bet you didn't think of that IOC! Ha!

Is it because Brazil brought Pele to help campaign? What, is Oprah not good enough anymore?!

Or, is it simply because we are the birthplace of this person:We cannot apologize anymore IOC! We thought by sending her to New York the curse would be broken.

Now I urge you to reconsider you choice. If you would like I can prepare a power point presentation with graphs and flow charts that would be narrated by my father (so you can get used to the accent and language). I would also be willing to send a deep dish pizza as a bribe, just saying.

Thank you for your time.

I'm from Chicago and my jaw dropped when they announced we were out. What the heck!!! Maybe we need to get Blago on the IOC committee ;)

Perhaps they were hypnotised by all her bright colours - yes colours, that's what did it! Found you over at Lani's and am now following you!
