gee... guess which one I picked...
sign me up for the "who gives a toss" flotilla!
Then we no longer have to listen to all the whinging.
Shouldn't there be a "They are! But I don't care they 'stole' our superior yachtsman" choice?
Count me in for the "Who really cares?" brigade. Though I did hear an interesting comparison between Black Magic and the Warriors the other day...
For one group, you need 17 team members and $30 for a pair of boots.
For the other you need 17 team members and $30 million for a pair of boats.
That's priceless, Klimt.
There was a Star Wars/America's Cup reference on the back of today's Herald in the 'sideswipe' column.
I'd quote it exactly, but I forgot it was todays and we used it to catch paint while painting the kitchen.
Apparently, someone had made a reference earlier to Dean Barker and his girlfriend Mandy being the Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia of the Gulf, but the bit today said something like 'Star Wars fans have pointed out that Luke and Leia are in fact brother and sister'.
LOL, those nerdy SW fans just wouldn't tolerate that kind of mistake.
Yeah I remember seeing that one, Kitt. That was the one with Dennis Conner as Jabba if memory serves.
my new take on this is that the America's Cup will _never_ end. The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron will just continue postponing the races forever, until the Swiss just give up in disgust and fly home.
I can see a patch of blue sky here so hopefully the waether will clear up soon.
But this was a bit unexpected: Cyanide letter threat to Cup ...
They're racing again ... looks rough out there.
My Dad's opinion: "They've had it!" but then, he is a bit of a pessimist
e: Their mast has snapped ... looks terrible out there, hope they can get back to shore safely.
Oh. My. God.
This is terrible!!
Perhaps I should start Gambling. I said from about the middle of the Loius Vitton that Alinghi would win.
Bad luck for NZ.
Okay, it's the last race .. Alinghi's in the lead
It's not the last race. It's not the last race until Alinghi crosses the finish line before us. If we cross first - there's more races.
It is possible to win from here, but highly unlikely... unfortunately.
edit = I've just been informed we lost.
My gosh, talk about old news, lol.
