Chicago’s Failed Bid to Host the 2016 Summer Olympics

2009 October 2
Comments Off

I wrote a bunch of jokes about Chicago’s bid to host the 2016 Summer Olympics for my friend Mark Bazer’s The Interview Show tonight in Chicago. But he’s only going to be able to fit a couple of them into what he’s got planned. So, rather than let most of them go to waste, here they are: read more…
