High fives all around – it’s Thursday.
Today, our throwback inspiration comes via two sources.
Firstly, yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day, so I hope the whiskey hangover is mild.
Secondly, the world’s foremost yacht race concluded yesterday, with Team New Zealand defending their 2017 victory and winning the 36th America’s Cup race.
In a first-to-seven series, things were tied at three apiece before the Kiwis claimed four on the trot, defeating Italy’s Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli.
You can read more on that here.
So, what do you get when you combine boating and the Irish? Some classic commentary, as evident from this video focusing on sailing events from the 2012 London Olympics.
Stick around until the end for the real kicker:
Here’s the part I really like – the commentary is the work of Irish comedian Chris ‘The Viper’ Tordoff, although that fact passed many news outlets by when the video first went viral.
The Irish Olympic Council also failed to see the funny side, forcing Tordoff to take his video off YouTube.
Thankfully, other accounts stepped into fill the void, and now your Thursday is all the better for it.
