Are you ready for some futbol?

As NBC's advertising has undoubtedly made you aware, the Opening Ceremonies in Beijing will take place on August 8, 2008, but the Games commence Wednesday with first-round group-play action in women's soccer. Check out our daily Olympic snapshot for all the details and TV listings:

STAR ATTRACTION: The United States women's soccer team opens defense of its Olympic title against Norway, the only other country to win a gold medal in the sport. The US already boasts a pair of 4-0 wins over Norway this year, but they're not looking past their opening-round opponent. "Friendlies don't really mean anything," said United States defender Kate Markgraf. "What matters is how you're playing during the Olympics."

TV SCHEDULE: MSNBC, 7:30-10 a.m. -- Women's Soccer, United States vs. Norway (LIVE); Universal HD, 7:30-10 a.m. -- Women's Soccer, United States vs. Norway (Simulcast); NBC Olympic Soccer Channel, 5 a.m.-5 p.m. -- Women's games.

  1. For those of us with Comcast, the Soccer Channel is unavailable. I spoke with them yesterday and they had no knowledge of it. I think that's really shocking.
