Hilarious :-)
But is it real commentary or a comedy skit?

It's real commentary - it was like that the whole time.

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.

I'd rather listen to him than the real thing.

I was young and stupid then. I'm old and stupid now.
We get too soon old, and too late smart.
I started off with nothing and still have most of it left.

Pretty funny stuff there. Loved it when the commentator called one of the sailors a dickhead. lmao

Re: Irish Olympic Sailing Commentary

Solo sailboat in little boats is slow,big boat races with crews is great..camera's on board...split second timing.lots of power / close calls. I'd like to have the $$ to have a race boat then of course there's the cost of hiring the crew,on top of the that there's the tactican who chooses & changes the race line depending on wind shifts...big boys toy's. I guess I'm out of it.

I'll stick with motorcycle racing where the excitement level is all down to myself rather than a team :-)
