If you can't leap across the pond for the Olympic games, television coverage will be aired on NBC. See the full schedule of Olympic games on London2012.com.
You can also head to Joe & Lewie's Penalty Box in Fenton where the Olympics will be featured on NBC TV and they will be running promotions throughout the Olympic Games. Owners expect big crowds for the big events.
You can bet Fenton resident Nyoka Koleda will be tuned into NBC for the Olympics. She is a huge Olympics fan, who said she’ll flip between the channels broadcasting the Olympics to find different events and will DVR whatever she can’t watch at the time.
“I hope we win lots of medals,” she said.
