10/2 No gold for Chicago
Lou Piniella was disappointed the city of Chicago lost in its bid for the 2016 Olympics.
“That’s a shame,” Piniella said Friday. “The city of Chicago would’ve been a wonderful host and it’s a shame the city got eliminated, especially so quick. It’s a great sports town and we would’ve offered the international community a great venue.”
That means the Cubs won’t have to go on a long road trip seven years from now to accomodate the games.
“Seven years from now,” Piniella said, “I’ll be in Montenegro.”
