geoff diamond shitting himself? WGN didn't show that locally. I guess they were concerned about its effect on Chicago's 2016 Olympic bid.

Congratulations guys! This will be an amazing addition to a fantastic skyline. I can't believe construction will start in a month! I'll be visiting Chicargo in October so it'll be interesting to see how much progress they've made since then. Great job guys!!
