Wink Americas Cup

So Emirates-NZ have won the chance to spend some more money fighting Alinghi for the America's cup. Ozzie and US contenders please note: "More cash required next time".

I was really suprised with that final. It didn't seem to matter what Luna Rossa tried, they always got screwed. I was a little bit dissipointed with the pre start. It was good but I thought they would of been willing to risk more to give NZL a pen. They seemed to be good at it when they raced oracle.

Sometimes money just isn't enough.... BMW Oracle had it all and they could not get by Luna Rossam who also bombed against Emirates! I can't wait for the Cup. I have no idea how good Alinghi is...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Might just have something to do with the Red logo on your shirt... maybe...

As for the Photoshop... I think you should photoshop Waymar83, since you haven't graced us with one in a while.
