First the Olympics and now the America’s Cup have denied Rahm’s “world-class city” Chicago as the host of the world-class sporting events.

The Chicago Tribune reports:

San Diego and Bermuda have been shortlisted to host the event, America’s Cup organizers announced Tuesday. 
 
Cup officials visited Chicago in February and again in May to scout Lake Michigan as a potential course, naming the city one of three finalists to host the 2017 event.

Perhaps race sponsors saw the news that Chicago is America’s murder capital and thought the regattas would go better without their competitors dodging stray bullets or getting attacked on “Mugger’s [Magnificent] Mile.”
