Sure, we were all pleased as punch here in Chicago to hear about the Olympics on Saturday afternoon (this writer even let out a bit of a holler with his girlfriend while they were driving around, listening to the coverage on the radio). If you missed all the hubbub around here, particularly Mayor Daley acting like an exciting little kid upon hearing the announcement, the Tribune has a batch of video coverage of the event and the subsequent reactions after, as well as some plans of what’s to come next as we start the next round: taking on the rest of the world.
