Sochi Olympics 2014: Day 2 - Schedule, How to Watch and More

It's begun. - Pool

The Opening Ceremonies are done, and it's time to get down to action. Here's what you need to know.

The snarkmeisters of the Internet will gladly tell you everything that was wrong with the Opening Ceremonies in Sochi last night, but in all it was actually a pretty sweet program. Of course, NBC did everything they could to mess it up, but then what would you expect?

Anyway, let's get up up to speed on what to expect today. ALL events are available live via streaming at NBCOlympics.com, so long as you're a customer of a participating cable, satellite or FIOS provider. All times Central.
