    I'll just start off by saying that this could go down as the biggest disaster in the history of sport.

    Rio Olympics: Athletes welcomed with condoms, cool air - CNN.com

    42 condoms for each athlete.

    If Wilt Chamberlain were still around, he would have said "Great......but what do I do after Night 1?"

    I shall now bathe in the pool of fail.

    The condoms thing is old news, written at every Olympics.

    This has been written about at least three Olympics that I can recall recently (Athens, Beijing, Sochi), and there were lesser but still dark predictions about many others (Atlanta, and London specifically to terror attacks).

    Seems like Brazil faces more challenges than most, but this panic is not new.

    "Blame it on Rio."

    If they show someone who looks as good as Michelle Johnson looked topless, I might tune in.

    Head down next Monday. Happily married (at least I am, can't speak for the boss), so someone can have my 42.
