sir ben’s yorkshire pudding

America’s Cup organizers continue to face the karmic consequences of the theft of the event from American shores, with the latest face slap coming from New York City’s weather.  Sunny and bright last week turned to torrential and winter-like this one, with more rain and temps in the 50s on call for the big ACWS show this weekend.

America’s leading sports commentator and long time NBC Olympic anchor Bob Costas made headlines during an otherwise quiet press conference when he summed up America’s understanding of yacht racing in a question to French skipper Franck Cammas, “Does the French team have plenty of wine and cheese onboard?”

Page six said there were ‘gasps from the audience’ who wondered whether Costas would next ask if Sir Ben had Yorkshire Pudding aboard his boat, not understanding that Americans don’t know what Yorkshire Pudding is, and that the latest Louis Vuitton mess has only made the public’s perception of yachting worse – an almost impossible accomplishment.

For your own slice of pudding, watch the full presser here, with thanks to Nic the Sailor Girl.  We’d send you over to watch the racing if we thought it would be worth it.  Spend your time (and not your money) here instead.
