Rio for the Olympics!

With two years before the vote for the 2016 host, Chicago is third or fourth on the list of favorites, U.S. Olympic Committee chairman Peter Ueberroth said Thursday. Ahead of Chicago are Madrid, Spain; Tokyo; and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
here. Madrid? Europe had the 2004 summer games, and Spain had the 92 games (Barcelona). Japan had the 98 winter games in Nagano. Come on people give it to Rio! They just kicked ass with the Pan-American games with no incidents, as I predicted.

So it's an exciting time for Brazilian sports. They're just awesome at soccer, with only more talent in the pipeline (wait for Robinho at the 2010 World Cup). Plus Brazil is likely to get the 2014 World Cup, and a chance at the 2016 Olympics. Go!
