Take DAT Baku

(Crain’s) — Chicago’s Olympics dreams are still alive.
That’s the welcome — if expected — news from Athens, Greece, as the International Olympic Committee announced that Chicago is one of four finalists to host the 2016 Summer Olympics.

The Windy City joins Tokyo, Madrid and Rio de Janeiro on the short list of cities that have been found technically capable of hosting the 2016 games. All four cities have strong credentials, and the competition is likely to be close before a final decision is made in November 2009.

Eliminated were Prague, Czech Republic; Doha, Qatar, and Baku, Azerbaijan.

Note that the proposed venues include Huskie Stadium in DeKalb. Is it possible for the entire world to contract SUCKS?

The entire world will not be able to contract SUCKS because the Olympics will be in Rio.
