Rowing Schedule

For those who have asked whether they can see Silas row on TV, here’s the deal:

Silas will row three times:

July 28, 4:00 a.m. PST (that’s noon in London)–heats

August 1, 3:00 a.m. PST–semis

August 3, 2:20 PST–finals

If you want to get up in the middle of the night to see it streamed live on your computer, you have to go to NBCOlympics.com and sign up for the (free) privilege. It won’t work for just anybody: you have to have a TV cable package that includes NBC’s sports channel. (I don’t.)

Otherwise, there will be snippets of rowing shown on NBC TV, according to the schedule. Here are the times for the days when Silas is rowing:

July 28, 2:30-3:00 p.m. PST

August 1, 3:45-4:00 p.m. PST

August 3, 9:30-9:45 a.m., 2:45-3:30 p.m. PST (Since this day is his final, it’s probably your best chance to see him on TV.)

    I’m planning to give the “streaming record” thing a go (think I have it figured out) – just need to set my alarm!

    Great! Thanks. We wanted to know too! I’m going to link to this on Twitter so others will know about it–I think Tim Stafford/Christianity Today fans will want to know.
