Where would you rather attend the Olympics? Rio, Madrid, or Chicago. 'nuff said. Really not a surprise to me.

Nothing compared to the $48 million it took to be included in the bidding process.

a lot depends on what he was wearing and how he looked at the time of the post (jesus bling, collar pop, orange skin) and whether he had a hot chick on his arm. Anyone have a picture?
