Chicago may have lost its bid to host the 2016 Olympic Games, but the City of Big Shoulders has been too busy playing host to other big events to look back—the Ryder Cup last week, the Chicago Marathon and college football at Soldier Field over the weekend.
Between the Irish and Miami fans converging on our fair city, to the European contingent who won the Ryder Cup, to an Ethiopian who took first place at the Chicago Marathon, it would appear that though the city lost its Olympic bid it has nonetheless been host to a mini-Olympics of sorts for the past couple of weeks. Looking back over its broad shoulders? No way. The city is too busy moving forward, albeit slowly sometimes, to ever look back.
Thanks for stopping by! Make it a great day!
