Live from Beijing

My friend and former colleague Beau Dure, a major soccer enthusiast and a very occasional commenter here, is, as I write, en route to Beijing to cover Olympic soccer for USA Today. In an e-mail to some friends and relatives, he lists a number of ways in which you can keep up with what he’s doing:

1. Read my stories online at

2. Check my work blog, which I may or may not update regularly at

3. Check my Twitter feed, which I will update regularly, at

4. Check our blog for the Olympics, to which I’ll contribute on occasion, at

5. E-mail me [I’m omitting his personal e-mail address — Lex]

6. Message me on Facebook

7. See the games I’m covering, live on TV in the early a.m. Eastern time. Here’s the TV schedule for the group stage (I will NOT be going to the third women’s game in Shenyang). Start at 7:45 a.m. ET Wednesday for the women’s game against Norway on MSNBC and the NBC Olympic Soccer Channel, which your cable system may or may not be adding.

8. Go to your newsstand or a newspaper rack, plunk down 75 cents and read my stories.

I’m not quite the soccer enthusiast Beau is, but I’ll be checking on him nonetheless.
