An Irish relative is in the 2008 Olympics

My brother just let me know that one of our Kerry kin is representing Ireland in Beijing.  Sean Casey is a medal-winning rower from Killarney — Sean’s profile is here.  Their first heat is tomorrow (9 August) at 1730h Beijing/0530h Eastern time.  

We’ll be cheering him on if we can find it on the tube (here is a PDF of when events will be aired on TV. USA Network seems to be the best choice in the USA, provided you have a VCR or DVR).
