For Spain's national soccer team, the road to Brazil included a brief stop in Baltimore. The European powerhouse, among the favorites to win the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, arrived at Baltimore-Washington International Airport on Monday night to a water-cannon salute from the BWI Fire and Rescue Department and to hundreds of fans who crowded the terminal to catch a glimpse of their favorite stars.

" But Leonardo Gryner perhaps put it best when the CEO of Rio de Janeiro's organizing committee offered a hint of what to expect at the 2016 Olympics in the Carnival City.
