Easy now. It could be as simple as everyone thinking Chicogo would win, so in the first round they wanted to vote for the underdog...It happens...

Yeah. I don't see the US bidding for a bit. Frankly, the Games mean more to other countries. In the US, the bid is looked down upon because a financially sound bid doesn't leave enough legacy behind, while one that leaves a legacy is as financially irresponsible as all others. There is no winning for the US and we haven't even brought politics into the equation.

The scope of Samaranch's influence would be proven to be absolutely flooring if Madrid wins the bid.

Stop bitching, the world isn't just the United States. You had the olympics in 1984 and 1996, and 2016 again? There are tons of countries over there that would love to host it and these countries should also have their chances.
