The America's Cup

I was watching NBC Sports this morning.  I had Tivoed Sunday's America's Cup races.  I've done a fair amount of rock climbing.  I've jumped out of a perfectly good airplane.  All fine.  However, if I was on board one of these boats during a race I would probably wet myself.  They are absolutely flying along the water, topping out at better than 50 mph. The entire race seems a bit like choreographed pandemonium.

If you want to catch any of the action, watch soon because New Zealand is just about done kicking our U.S. asses.  My favorite was from Race 8.  Hit play and skip ahead to about minute 28:00.  Watch for a minute or two and you'll see how exciting it can get.
