Scuttlebutt Video of the Week
August 10, 2012

As Olympic sailing seeks to heighten its broadcast appeal, this Irish parody from the 2012 Games might have determined how best to do it.

But while this video was getting massive views online, it also highlighted two unfortunate realities: it is easier to describe how confusing the sport is than truly explain it, and the International Olympic Committee does not have a sense of humor.

The IOC has pulled it from several sites, and if it remains below (click here, here, or here if not below), it might only be due to the IOC finally realizing what a gift it is. But we don't expect them to admit it.
