Jordan Will Not Be Going To Copenhagen


Soaring

Recommended Posts

if Jordan, Phelps, B&M Obama, and Mia Hamm showed up in Denmark Chicago would win Hands down.

Without star power... who knows.

There are 2 things that are certain in life Death and Taxes, the 3rd most certain thing is a Chicago 2016 cauldron WILL be lit by Michael Jordan, there is no one else who could possibly do that other than him. So if he is such an icon why the hell isnt he going to Denmark? What could Michael Jordan have on his plate than spending a few days in a 6-star Europeaan hotel gladhanding the IOC and assuring Chicago and himself immortality on a world stage?

Is he golfing or some bullshit?

Well, he was just attending the NBA Hall of Fame ceremony, but he mostly golfs, and is part owner of the Charlotte Bobcats during the b-ball season.

He would be stupid not to attend, and it just shows how wrapped up he is in himself.

Brazil could counter those Athletes with Pele and Oscar Schmidt. Oscar Schmidt the man who turned down playing in the NBA for the New Jersey Nets so he could play in 5 olympics as an amateur, Three time scoring Champion for olympic tournaments despite Brazil not getting to the final rounds fo play. Not famous in America but well respected in IOC circles where it counts . Having Michael Jordan show up would be great except it would seem like a last minute move compared with Pele who has traveled with the Rio 2016 bid as a bid ambassador . Pele was the centre of attention for the African Delegates in Abuja this summer. what did Chicago 2016 do ? Bring a Video tape of Obama speaking to the African IOC members. Thing is Rio 2016 certainly has shown a Nation effort that takes the bid seriously while Chicago 2016 looks like Athletes are self centered and above lobbying . David Beckham was certainly a good part of London 2012s success.

I would tend to think if Tiger Woods was to show up it would be very good for Chicago 2016.
