article imageVideo: Hilarious Irish commentary on Olympic boat racing

By Elizabeth Batt     Aug 8, 2012 in Sports
If you've ever been confused about Olympic boating, then you're not alone. This official boat race from the 2012 Olympics left this Irish commentator flailing in the wind.
Alright, so it's a parody, but it's a funny one. And the video which was added to Live Leak on August 05, has so far received over 123,000 hits.
Uploaded by SpIderZ, the commentator announces that with "only four minutes left to this race ... it's looking very close ... and ... confusing." With boats in the water everywhere, he then exclaims, "There's some mad man there, going the wrong way completely—he doesn't know what he's doing—go back you fool!"
The camera then pans over to the crowd gathered on the shore and not too many observers escape his notice—including the Finnish lady. "I wouldn't mind finishing off with her," he quips, before it's backs to boats again, and this time Belarus. "Not so good in the water it seems—questionable for human rights records as well, that country," he adds.
Now be warned, there's a few swear words in there, and the commentary borders on the risqué at times, but the Irish brogue makes them a little easier on the ear. Still, if you're easily offended, you can always give give this one a hop, skip and a jump.
