RIO DE JANEIRO -- I came here to the land of sand, futebol and rhythm, on my maiden voyage to South America, expecting very little. But fear not. You aren't about to be subjected to yet another foreigner's rant about the accommodations, logistics, traffic, insects, crime or any of the other things jittery Americans like myself have railed about for months in advance of these Olympic Games and with inevitably greater volume since they started. I'm talking about the basketball. If I may borrow from Dick Vitale's dictionary: Rio was supposed to be Blowout City.
