    Yeah, I guess I am rooting for Rio now to get it in SA. Although I'm bummed!  I love Chicago!

    I don't want to be debbie downer, but I'm glad that the US didn't get it again.  We've had 3 in the past 25 years, it seems like there are other nations that should be showcased.  I personally think Rio should get it, honestly I can't remember when/if a Central or South American country had the Olympics.

    I am really rooting for Rio. I think they would do a beautiful job. Plus, Brazil is a great country to showcase environmental issues.

    Thanks KR, I knew there weren't any since I've been alive, but I have no clue who all hosted before that.When we went to see the Tonight Show in LA, they had fans that blow mist on you as you wait in line, one of them was marked Atlanta '96 with the Olympic symbol lol!

    I have mixed feelings about Chicago not getting it.  It would have been neat to see all the preparations (and the games, of course!), but public opinion here was actually leaning towards not wanting it.  I'm so excited for Rio!  It's about time a South American country gets to host!
