Where would you rather go to see the olympics? Chicago or Rio? no contest. Chicago didn't stand a chance from the get go.

Chicago just doesn't have the cachet or international appeal. It's crummy compared to Rio and a 2nd rate US city at best.
It's not a matter of "where they would rather travel to"...you claim that most people would rather travel to Rio to see the Olympics. That's a totally different subject.

The rampant crime and poverty in Rio isn't attractive to most of the world. The beaches are the only thing going for it. Chicago has every other advantage known to man, and even has beaches.

Then you have never been to Chicago...that says it all.

It's very classy to gloat. Just in case you don't know what that means: gloat - to observe or think about something with triumphant and often malicious satisfaction, gratification, or delight.

No matter what U.S. city was in the running, we weren't going to get it. This has nothing to do with Chicago.
