I have a present for those of you who would like to watch the Opening Ceremonies live. And by live I mean 'as it happens live', not 'NBC making us watch 5 hours later to boost their primetime ratings live'. Below is a link to a stream of BBC ONE, which is broadcasting the Opening Ceremonies over in jolly ole England.
Festivities officially start at 4 PM Eastern/1 PM Pacific
If the link fails, try firstrowsports, wiziwig, or just try searching for 'free bbc one streaming'.
Go Team USA!
And fuck you NBC.
