If one of our readers doesn't win this thing, or at least place three entries in the top ten, we'll be disappointed:
- A delegation from the International Olympic Committee arrives here this week, ready to be romanced by Mayor Richard Daley, who is in desperate lust to host the 2016 Olympic Games in Chicago.
And we need to help him.
- Let's give the IOC some suggestions for real, Chicago-style Olympic sporting events, so that the 2016 Olympics will have an authentic Chicago flavor.
Kass provides a hint of what he is looking for:
- I'm talking Chicago-style events like the Bag-Man Relay Races, or the Bag-O-Quarters Clean-and-Jerk Parking Meter competition; and the 100-Meter Dash to Affirmative Action Contracts Won by White Guys.
Or, perhaps one of you might suggest that the IOC adopt the most important event of the 2016 Chicago Olympics:
Hide the Subcontractor.
Another exciting Chicago Olympic event might be the 400-Meter Real Estate Pairs Run.
