I would expect Rio to get it. The media has totally mis-called this - the Olympics deserve to be in South America for the first time - even if the venue isn't ideal. It is the right thing to do.

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?
