I didn't see a thread already, so here goes. The 2008 Summer Olympics open on Friday, 8/8. Group play for football (soccer) started this morning. Below are some links to the games schedule and coverage.

Argentina (1-2 Canada), Germany v. Brazil (tie 0-0), Japan v. New Zealand (tie 2-2), China v. Sweden (2-1 China), DPR Korea v. Nigeria (1-0 Korea).
I'm considering getting up early tomorrow (4 am) to watch the USA (men) v. Japan soccer match.
