Re: Do you believe in miracles???

Whatever Oracle did to their boat last week (or whatever ETNZ Voodoo doll they stuck pins into), it sure as hell worked.

Yippee!! The next AC defense will be in SF!! Couldn't ask for a prettier backdrop.

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.

Not necessarily. LE could move it, but we'll have to wait and see.

Really should be in Newport, IMHO.

Yawn.

Your blue blazer, stuffy East Coast, light air, lead mine AC regattas are a thing of the past. Better get used to that.

I thought Newport would be cool, too. But San Francisco is a much better venue, really. Plenty of wind, a place for spectators to watch from shore, and a nice place to visit for everyone.

I think that Newport, and the 12 meters, was pretty awesome. These cats are the 21st century. Time to move on.

I can't think of a better us city than San Francisco for the cup. Don't forget the views from all the hills. Newport doesn't have that. I don't think it has the wind SF does. I say Honolulu would be the second best choice. Hawaii needs a new race there. They have really declined.

Ah yes of course, I'm just jealous.

All I'm saying is that it is hardly an "American Sailing Lesson" when the sailors are from everywhere BUT the USA! Even the American tactician was punted in favour of a Brit!

Don't worry, Americans still reign supreme in their ability to blow obscene amounts of money on a sport the American public doesn't give a crap about!

That suggestion came up (in jest) in the press conference. It's worth an hour of your time to watch, IMO. SF is definitely not a given, for the next cup.
