This is a funny, very genuinely Chicago-style article and associated video about Chicago's failed bid for the 2016 Olympics. Given the problems that Rio had getting ready for the event, and the huge costs inevitably associated with staging the Olympics in your city, it seems in retrospect that it was better in the long-run for Chicago to have lost. I remember in 2009 when I heard that Chicago would not host the Olympics. I was really sad, but I can understand what this article is saying, and they're probably right.
