OK, I am prejudiced in the America’s Cup Race.
I almost worked for Larry Ellison at Oracle.
And I did work for Oracle through their business arrangements.
So, I am for ORACLE!
But, on the latest debacle. Some are comparing New Zealand losing their forward sail to a gladiator sport.
But, I think the loss of a sailor a couple of months back would have been a better ‘gladiator’ comparison. Maybe the above author doesn’t know what gladiator sports were about?
During that accident, a British sailor died.
In any sport there are risks.
Please do not misunderstand my “GO ORACLE!” enthusiasm as a desire for injuries and death. I just love the speed, and the absolute precision these teams are able to produce in these big boats. The are big and fast.
And I LOVE that.
