After yesterday's interesting Opening Ceremony, the London 2012 Games are in full action. Women's soccer continues their group play (how many goals will Alex Morgan score today?). The rowing heats have begun. The super busy swimming schedule also kicks off today with both prelim and finals in several events, including the only appearance of Cal/USA/Olympics great Natalie Coughlin and a possible first ever medal for current Bear, Caitlin Leverenz. Again, you can track the Calympians' upcoming schedule in this CGB calendar. GO BEARS!
How to watch: Info about the TV broadcast will be provided along with links to the NBC online stream (particularly for the prelim events). Online stream may require login in with your (or a friend/relative's) cable TV info.
Note: Online links should also be good for replays that won't be aired in prime-time, which NBC has so generously pulled. I love NBC.

Looking at the NBC schedule for the West Coast, Swimming (probably taped delayed) is schedule from 11-11:45 AM and 1:30-2:30 PM. Rowing is schedule for 2:30-3 PM. Primetime coverage, starting at 8 PM, will probably include replays of the finals.
Discuss today's actions in the comments. We will try to update the entry list for the evening's semifinal and final races whenever possible (after the jump). GO BEARS!
