ATHENS, Greece -- I'm not sure how the scalper knew I was American, but I suspect it was the Minnesota Lynx T-shirt that I was wearing while I stood in line at the ticket booth outside the Helleniko Olympic Complex on Sunday.
"Excuse me, you're from the United States?'' he asked with a slight German accent. "Do you want a ticket to the basketball game?''
No, I'm going to the Greece-Netherlands baseball game.
