Sounds like a character from "Father Ted" covering the opening of a lingerie department.

Great video! Now if those guys would just take over commentary for NBC here in the US, the ratings would go way up.

Re: Olympic Sailing, very funny

Well ain't that typical of "big business" - thousands of athletes donate their time to create a global show and some bureaucrat spoils it only focused on the monetary side. Whatever happened to all advertising is good advertising. Very disappointed in the IOC...

At least digital is forever and the video is out there somewhere...

OTOH the sailing coverage has been great here in Singapore. We get at least nine channels of olympic sports live.

The 49ers were flying! They make it look easy.

To the persons involved in canceling this video, I quote a line from a Monte Python movie:

"I fart in your general direction."

Like I said - digital is forever - I fart in the general direction of the IOC.

Enjoy it while it lasts...

Funny Olympics Video ...

This really is pretty good. DO be cautioned that there is some colorful language. But, this has to be how most people see our sport!
