Are you seriously going to wear that?

10_13_06_chicago_2016.jpgThe US Olympic Committee is in town today to evaluate Chicago’s bid for the 2016 Olympic Games, so everyone tuck in your shirts. Try not to look like such a slob for once in your life.

I know there are some of you out there who don’t like the idea of millions of people from all over the world descending on Chicago for a two week party, but don’t ruin this for the rest of us, okay?

I’m no world traveler, but I can’t imagine it gets any better than Chicago in the summer. The world needs to see that this is the greatest city in the country. Hell, if it gets all those east coasters and west coasters to shut up about their stupid coasts for, like, 10 seconds, it will be worth it. Mostly I’m excited because the Olympics are a great excuse to take on some big, crazy, weird construction projects. I’m telling you, we’re gonna end up with a 30 story glow-in-the-dark sculpture of a cow that gives people rides into space before you know it. Make no small plans!

My favorite part about the pitch is that Michael Jordan has said he will be available to help “when he’s most needed.” It will come down to the final vote and Chicago will just throw Jordan into the conference room and be like, “kaBLOW! Michael Jordan! Chicago!”

It’s in the bag.
