Re: AC 34 - What If?

Using golf as an analogy, I liken Oracle's practicing against their teammates to a golf pro competing against his or her caddy. While Emirates would be more like the golf pro out playing on tour against other pros, where one shot can mean being eliminated from the tournament. Oracle was in the Cup regardless. The challenger has to earn their way and when something like that is on the line, you work harder to get there.
