the greatest sham on earth

AC Dope

Nothing like a little hyperbole, but thanks to the limiting, incredibly artificial wind limits put in place (thanks to Artemis’ epic fail), today’s AC racing has been postponed until tomorrow. And if it blows the same tomorrow (this is breezy ‘frisco, after all. what, did they not think it wasn’t going to blow 20+ every single day?), and the day after that, and the day after that, and the day after that, well then what? Raise the wind limits to where they should be? Or just keep postponing day after day until the audience goes into a coma, the tired old men who are running this into the ground die of old age, and then cancel the entire event, declare the Kiwis the winners, and look forward to the grownups running the AC ¬†again?

Either way, it is a ridiculous situation that once again the AC has put itself in. Every time this fiasco gains a little momentum, it resorts back to it’s default position: We Suck, and Couldn’t Manage A Soap Box Derby, Let Alone A Regatta Of This Magnitude If We Had To.

Yes, we’re waiting for the complain e-mails saying how “going negative” isn’t helping the sport, blah blah blah, but lets call a spade a spade: Despite some fairly compelling moments of racing, this AC is a debacle.
