Thanks for highlighting some of today’s events; I used the information to update my DVR so I wouldn’t miss an event I’m interested in seeing. I’ve been away from home the past few days so I had to rely on my iPad for most of my coverage. I used the Dish Remote Access App and watched some live canoeing and saw other recorded events on my DVR. I got to see last night’s gold medal performance from Missy Franklin on my commute to Dish. It’s been an exciting few days; I can’t to see how the U.S. does at the end of it!
