Big cheers to all our riders in Hong Kong! Axel and I have been glued to our computer, watching the streaming video in the mornings. We’ve logged on to watch whether we were in airport lounges or hotels…. Early! A 7:15 pm start time in Hong Kong translates to 4:15 am California time. On Tuesday, even though we’d just arrived home the day before and it was the first morning in a week that we didn’t have a pre-dawn flight to catch or a horse show to get to, we awoke at that very early hour to watch the Freestyles.
We figure that because we didn’t have to buy two plane tickets to Hong Kong, hotel rooms, taxis, subways, flags to wave, etc, we made out very well being able to curl up on the couch in our living room for several hours of unedited world class dressage.
I’ve already sent my thank you. Have you? Here’s the address, so no excuses now!
And remember to click on the ads on “our” page on the NBC Olympic website to show both NBC and the sponsors that we’ve been watching!
