Olympic Daily Glance: Day -1 — Flagged

Thursday at the Olympic Games: More soccer. Soccer fans probably think these Games are about them … they’re so vain.


On Wednesday, the U.S. women’s soccer team fell behind 2-0 and came back to win 4-2 against France. African women’s soccer teams didn’t do so well. Neither did the people who picked out the flags to show on the big screen at one soccer venue, which showed South Korean flags by pictures of North Korean players. They had a little delay after that.


Geez, could you wait another day or two?


Soccer: Eight men’s games, spread throughout the day.
– U.S. interest: Didn’t qualify. Don’t remind us.
