Seriously - I was cheeering for both teams but wanted Team USA/AUS to win simply because I think they will run the big fast boats where as the Kuwwies probably weren't going to.
This guy has a point. Not only was the boat being sailed by an Australian Jimmy Spithill, but some of the guys from the 1983 Team were actually working for Team Oracle.
That 1983 win by Australia actually got the event going IMO. (and they were down 3 to 1 at one point in a best of 7) Also ,what an awesome effort by Dean Barker and ETNZ. Hopefully, we will see them again in the next one.
