Go Back You Fool! An Irish Sailing Mockumentary

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." He starts out excitedly with, "It's looking very close....and confusing...." and goes downhill, and around in circles, from there. Olympics officials took it down for a while, but we found it again. It sure beats the surreal spectacle of those idiots at Fox  blathering on about Gabby Douglas' hair and outfits not being "patriotic" enough.
