Congrats Team Oracle/USA on the Americas Cup

Recommended Posts

Been up each day at the pub for 7:30 am to watch each race with breakfast. That was the greatest comeback in the history of any sport I can think of.

 

Congrats to Team Oracle.

To bad the boat didn't sink like my paycheck did when he bought the airline I was flying for.

On the bright side it will be nice to get my mornings back now!

Congrats to them, very well deserved, although I didn't believe they would make it after the first few races.

Elliisor has half the money in the world. He can pretty much buy anything he wants.Did some consulting work for Oracle. Failure is not an option.

Pretty much sums it up. Lots of IT guys share your view. To comeback from an 8 race to 1 and win the cup shows how badly he wanted it and how quickly he was able to make changes.

 

He pretty much wiped out the New Zealand team by throwing some money around and now this sport has become in jeopardy as it financially bankrupted the sport in New Zealand trying to keep up with him.

Didn't I read somewhere she had a British skipper who pulled the rug from under the Kiwis? Maybe they should give the cup to us!

Yes both teams had members from various nations, however both those boats were built in New Zealand, therefore New Zealand won
