Oh look! People! Rowing boats! On your computer!

ESPNBoston.com will simulcast the Head of the Charles this weekend.

“We are thrilled that one of the leading sports websites in the region, ESPNBoston.com, is pioneering coverage of rowing with its simulcast of this year’s Head Of The Charles,” Fred Schoch, executive director of the Head Of The Charles Regatta, said in a release. “In many other parts of the world, rowing is a highly-watched television sport and we’re hoping exposure like this can continue to build rowing’s popularity in the United States.”

There’s something really sad about that last line, no?

Anyway, catch the show Saturday starting at 3:15 p.m. or Sunday at 2 p.m.
