    Thank you for today’s schedule highlights; I always want to keep up with the more compelling sports at the Summer Olympics. I am hoping that Team USA will be able to overtake China in the overall medal count today. I’ve been using the Dish Hopper to record all the live footage I am missing when I’m at work, and with up to 2,000 hours of recording space I can save my favorite Olympics moments and regularly scheduled shows. My Dish coworkers suggested that I make the upgrade before the Summer Games began and now I don’t have to delete anything to make room for more space. Now I’m waiting for Team USA to make headway against China in the gold medal count!
