Unbeknownst To Most, Olympics Started Today

by Jeff Briggs

Chances are you didn't know the Olympics actually started today, two days before the opening ceremonies, with women's soccer. The US Women's Soccer Team lost to Norway 2-0. The Norwegians scored two goals in the first four minutes. Other results from the day (all women's soccer) include China over Sweden, North Korea over Nigeria, a Brazil - Germany tie, a Japan - New Zealand tie, and Canada over Argentina.

Tomorrow men's soccer starts play with USA vs. Japan at 5am on MSNBC.
