We’ll know for certain in a few hours, but if you ask me, Chicago is a shoe-in.
Not only did Big Guy bring his game, but also, Lady M bedazzled the house in her buttercup yellow wrap-sack with a bow while telling the IOC that her dad always wanted her to bring the Olympics to her home town.
She explained that it was her Chicago precinct captain father who first taught her how to manage around Washington:
"He showed me how to throw a ball and a mean right hook better than any boy in the neighbourhood," she said.
And that wasn’t just a story, it was a promise.
But the real give away on who was going to win the games came yesterday, when we went to the IOC ceremonies at the opera house. The Danish Choir performed.And while most of it was in Danish, the chorus was in English and perfectly clear:
“Barack. Hussein. Obama. Mmmm, mmmm, mmmm!”
I’m getting some new Nikes and UVA lenses for the big games.
