What to Watch Olympics Day 11 min read
Throughout the Olympics, I will hopefully be able to post a daily overview of the top events to watch with channel and time listed. So far, both the Men’s and Women’s soccer tournament has begun. On Wednesday the women kicked off the Olympics, the US defeated New Zealand 2-0. This morning the Men’s tournament started with Iraq and Denmark battling it out, the host Brazil team will be playing South Africa around 2pm (The US did not qualify for the Men’s tourney). This first post is very simple, tomorrow the event to watch is the Opening Ceremonies. It will be shown on NBC with coverage starting at 7:30/6:30c. Brazil will officially open up the Games with the lighting of the torch. It was announced yesterday that Michael Phelps will be the flag bearer for the United States. The decision makes sense given he is the most decorated Olympic athlete in history.
