OK, we’ve been very patient, waiting for our Bus League roster to finally take the field in Beijing. Wednesday is the day for their Olympic debut, and we’ll let you know when they’ll take to Wukesong Field:
Wednesday, August 13 – 6pm: USA vs Korea
Thursday, August 14 – 10:30am: Netherlands vs. USA
Friday, August 15 – 11:30am: USA vs. Cuba
Saturday, August 16 – 10:30am: USA vs. Canada
Monday, August 18 – 7pm: USA vs. China
Tuesday, August 19 – 7pm: USA vs. Chinese Taipei (Taiwan)
Wednesday, August 20 – 7pm: Japan vs. USA
The semis and finals happen on the 22nd and 23rd. The top four teams advance to the medal round, where the top team plays the fourth-ranked qualifier, and the 2nd and 3rd teams play one another to advance to the final. There is also a “consolation game” to decide the bronze, matching the losers of the first two games. If anyone can figure out the TV schedule, you are a better man than I.
We’ll be updating the results as we go, and help you keep track of Team USA’s chances to medal.
