Around 7 pm Beijing time, or 7 am Eastern tomorrow morning. I believe all of the horse events from now on will be at the same time, which is unfortunate for those of us who don't really like mornings :cry:

Whoo-hoo! I'm ready. Not that I'll be able to watch live, but hopefully catch it later at a convenient point. Keep up the play-by-play threads on the broadcasts! :yes:

It should be great! :yes: But sad for Rogerio Clementino, as his mount Nilo VO didn't pass inspection... :no:

I thought NBC was livestreaming the dressage but the NBC schedule says no livestream is scheduled for equestrian tomorrow am.

any ideas?

perhaps I'm interpreting the schedule incorrectly?

The link for tomorrow's equestrian is in the "Coming Up" box on the NBC site, so they are planning on streaming starting at 7:15am Eastern time.

darnit :(

Might be a good excuse to call in sick from work, seeing as I can't view video there. It is REALLY important, right?

Maybe try out a theory I had back when I was in school. If we were sick, we missed for not feeling well, and if the weather was lousy, the whole district had snow days. I always thought as a kid that in the interests of fairness, we ought to also have individual "well" days we could use, and the whole district ought to cancel now and then for weather that was just too good to waste sitting in school.

So try that. "Hey, boss, I'm sorry, but I just feel too good to come to work today. See you tomorrow."

On the other hand, my theory never carried much weight with Mom. :D

I am so, so bummed. :cry:

I am stuck at home, in a chair in front of the 'puter all day with my stupid busted up knee, and yet I can't get the video to work. <sob>

I'm really, truly upset. I've fiddled with everything I can, and you just can't seem to do it on dialup. :cry:

I'm all over 'well days'...I can't come in today..I feel too well!
Or...better still 'mental health' days ;)

I will get up early, watch a little while I get ready for work. then put it on at work and give the clients something to watch while they wait for their appt with the attorney, (my boss and best friend..lol), luckily she could care less if I watch it there, she is probably watching something on msnbc anyway..lol
