From the Associated Press on

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (AP) -Maracana stadium, the shrine of Brazilian soccer, is closed. The national sport is on hold, awaiting the start of the Pan American Games on Friday – and the promise of future glory that a successful sports showcase could bring.

The stadium, remodeled and refurbished, will host the opening ceremony, symbolizing Brazil’s desire to join the contenders to host more major international sporting events, including the 2014 World Cup and possibly even an Olympics.
