Sailors were likely unhappy, but non-sailors suffering from Olympic fatigue loved a hilarious video offering clueless "commentary" from Francis Higgins for the Women's Laser Radial - aka "some boats in a race."

It sure beats the surreal spectacle of those idiots at Fox  blathering on about Gabby Douglas' hair and outfits not being "patriotic" enough.
