This Friday begins an exciting time for millions across the world. NewsChannel 11 is honored to bring the 2008 Olympic games from Beijing, China into your home for two and half weeks, and in high definition.
The emotion and excitement of these games only comes around once every two years and this year will be special. The big events will be happening in the evenings due to the time difference between Lubbock and Beijing. That means more folks here will have the chance to actually see their favorite athletes during a live primetime broadcast right here on NewsChannel 11.
Consider this, from track and field, to basketball, swimming, gymnastics, diving, and much more, all eyes will be focused on the many world class athletes competing for gold. And, as you'll see on NewsChannel 11 at six all this week, Lubbock has a few special ties to this year's games.
So join me and the rest of the world starting this Friday, August 8, for the opening ceremonies of the 2008 Olympic Games, and let's cheer on team USA.
