Olympic Kayaking Events

Hey I was just gathering some information about the Olympics and thought I might post it here for everyone.

I also thought it might be fun for a group of people to get together and watch the event a pub somewhere... any thoughts? The finals are actually broadcast on Friday morning at 12:30AM but maybe it could be recorded and everyone get together on Friday night to watch it. Location?

Hey Ben,
Thanks a million for fishing all that stuff out!
Lots of west coast connections in this Olympics, though you can't tell from the profiles of athletes!
Eric Giddens (aka 'What's his name') of Kern River Brew Pub fame is setting the course this year.
Rebecca is well...Rebecca (silver medal 2004)
and some times local coach and general great guy Joe Jacobi is the color commentator on TV. (Oh yeah, I guess he has a GOLD medal from before I was born, '92, but who is counting!)
Tune in for anything related to paddling. Joe is wonderful as a commentator and he has great jokes about all those flatties!
