not your father’s ac

Bill Center is one of the old-school sports journos here in Dago, and he shares this take on the AC from last week…

It was spectacular. It was unique. It drew record crowds.

But was it really an America’s Cup?

I don’t think so.

This is to take nothing away from Oracle Team USA.

With San Diego resident James Spithill steering their ultra-high-tech catamaran, the Oracle team pulled off one of the greatest comebacks in the history of competition, winning eight straight races to successfully defend the “America’s Cup.”

Not only was the comeback one for the ages. The racing on San Francisco Bay created never-before-seen images and was the first truly “fan friendly” event in the 162-year history of the world’s oldest international event.

But I don’t view it as a true America’s Cup for a number of reasons. Read on.
