The 2016 Chicago Summer Olympics

Just Say YES to Chicago Hosting the '16 Summer Olympics.

The perfect American city to host the 2016 Summer Olympics is Chicago.


Well why not. Chicago is very good at a bringing a large amount of out-of-towners to it hospitable US midwest location. McCormick Place is an enormous convention hub and brings in millions of visitors and dollars to the city every year. The city has some of the most beautiful hotels, views and food in the world. Heck, it's just the best city in the United States, period.

Let me run off just some of Chicago's enormous benefits over US competitors San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Chicago has:

-A convenient lakefront proximity.
-A friendly citizentry of diversified ethnicity.
-A tight center city hub to keep housing issues manageable.
-Facilities geographically compressed to lesson commuting.
-An architecturally beautiful backdrop for television.
-A sophisticated sports populace.
-Newly built sports complexes for basketball and soccer.
-A flat terrain for track and field, cycling and other speed events.

Having lived in Chicago myself for over 30 years I can attest the Chicago would get "up" for such as global event and bring much pride and excitement to this unique and prestigious event.

I can't wait to get started. Let the Style Guide development games begin!

Go Get Them Windy City!
