San Francisco wanted the Cup so badly that it changed the terms of its agreement with Oracle Racing in the hours before offering it to the team, guaranteeing that it wouldn’t be accepted.
Rhode Island wants the Cup so badly that it can’t even figure out how much it would cost to host it prior to GGYC’s big deadline tomorrow, when the Defender must announce the venue for the 34th Cup.
BMW wants the Cup so badly that it allowed its sponsorship with the first US winner of the Cup in almost two decades to lapse at the end of 2010. And the USA is BMW’s largest market. Doesn’t anyone want this fucking Cup?
Keep posted on America’s Cup Anarchy brought to you by SLAM, where of course you’ll hear tomorrow’s announcement as early as anywhere on Earth.
