actually in Atlanta they played them in the Georgia Dome, I would expect them to be played at the UC.

Question, where in Chicago would there be enough land to put in new stadiums that would be needed

Washigton Park

An 80, 000 person, $350M temporary stadium in Wash. Park, will house the track and field and opening and closing events. The Olympic Village will be a string of new condo's on the lakefront which will be sold after the games, and the lakefront will be home to aquatic events. It should be perfect.
