It's confession time now. Although we love watching the Olympics on TV, we really don't have a clue about the rules or what's supposed to be going on in some of these sports. The worst offender? Sailing!

So we were more than a little tickled to stumble across this hilarious spoof Irish sailing commentary from Fran Higgins - via The Huffington Post - in which he says many of the things we've been secretly thinking over the past few days.

Our favourite bits? Well, no offence to Olympic champion Ben Ainslie, but we love it when the commentator refers to sailing as "essentially a very, very boring sport indeed".

He also questions the human rights records of some of the competing nations - and claims to have spotted Steven Spielberg and Tim Henman on board one of the yachts. Warning: he also occasionally uses sweary words.

Love it when real-life reporters and commentators mess up? Then we have a feeling you'll love our video slideshow, too...
