CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Western Massachusetts will be watching Friday when the summer Olympic Games begin in Rio de Janeiro. The games will be broadcast by 22News and NBC, with the Opening Ceremony starting at 7:30 p.m.
Of all the potential viewers who explained their reasons for watching the Olympics, Longmeadow High School senior Daniela Romero had a view that seemed to transcend sports.
“Well I would say it’s because the Olympics bring the whole world together. It brings a really positive feeling to a world that really needs it, because there really isn’t much of it now.”
