The International Olympic Committee recently gave the 2016 Olympic bid to Rio de Janeiro. Even an in-person appeal by the Obama’s couldn’t sway the IOC to give the nod to Chicago. Well Chicago, here I am in your loving arms once again. I think this is the fourth or fifth time for 2009 but I cannot remember, I’m losing track. I do know, however, that I was here one year ago to the day for election night. In light of all the time I’ve spent in Chicago recently, I thought I’d start my own fight for the 2020 summer games. Here’s my ever so humble and ever so sardonic beginnings of my ad campaign (all photos taken Nov 5, 2009).
Photographers note: I don’t know if any of the below captions are funny and/or worth reading. It’s late and my what wits I have went to sleep hours ago.
