    Just tested and it seems to work in mine, although no one streaming at the moment so hard to tell for sure. The Villa game is on at 3.30pm so will test properly then. I tend to get my links to the streams from http://www.fsicrew.info

    Looks like I picked a good time to give up work for 12 days (well, annual leave anyway). :)

    I should really plan my holiday bookings around the sporting calendar...

    :D. To be fair, it's entirely coincidental. The project I was working on has just finished so gave me the opportunity to take my first holiday since Christmas last year

    Edit: That's not to say I haven't done that in the past. Previously, all my holidays were planned around England's away qualifiers, seen some great European cities.

    Pairings for the morning foursomes have been announced:

    Harrington/Karlsson vs Mickleson/Kim
    Stenson/Casey vs Leonard/Mahan
    Poulter/Rose vs Cink/Campbell
    Westwood/Garcia vs Perry/Furyk

    On paper, the Europeans have got some very strong pairings there.

    Fancy Harrington & Karlsson in the top match. Not sure about Stenson in the foursomes as he can be erratic off the tee, but if he and Casey get it going they'll be difficult to stop. Poulter & Rose was predictable enough, given how matey they are - but think they're the weakest link of the Euro pairings on form. Bottom match should be a classic, especially as Perry's the local boy.

    If there are no decent feeds, I'll be keeping an eye on the BBC coverage - their live update thingy is usually really good for sporting events.

    I'm going down the 'Do not read anything on the intertubes' and PVR the tournament, get home at 5pm, start watching and skip the adverts.

    Should end up close.

    Working from home today, which means working from the living room rather than the office so I can keep an eye on this.

    Really you have to say the pairings look like 3-1 to Europe already (not sure about Poulter and Rose)...

    Just need to get a meeting out the way, then I'm off at 4pm for a rendevous with my mates sofa and a few crisp ales. Magic.

    The stream on justin.tv is working fine for me, though I am in a college not an office but they usually have this stuff blocked.

    Is BBC doing the usual text commentary-thingy? I can't find it on the website.

    Edit: ok, being stupid, it's on there, hadn't started before

    Should I throw the poker game I've been in for the last 3 hours so as not to miss the start? There is money at stake after all.

    You've about 3 hours before it starts to get interesting, most of the games will start to take shape around half 4ish I reckon. With the possible exception of the 1st game which I expect europe to win pretty easily.

    Go Padraig go!
