The USOC has signed the Death Warrant for Wrigley Field. Chicago is now committed to likely having to spend a fortune for the 2016 Olymipic Games. Very shortly the nonsense about a 75,000 seat temporary stadium in Washington Park is going to be revealed to be just that -- nonsense. (How in the world are the people going to get to or from that venue.) The next step will be a "new" Wrigley Field built in the Atlanta Model (with a large portion of it temporary for the Olympics). The question is simply going to be the location.
But the Death Warrant has been signed and now the only thing between its execution is a reprieve (and perhaps only a four year reprieve) if the IOC selects Rio.
