Loius Vuitton Cup

I've been watching the series of races to determine what nation's team will challenge Switzerland in the America's Cup yacht race later this month.

[Yes, it's weird that a nation with no ocean coastline is the reigning champion of the most prestigious sailboat race in the world. But we got used to that about 4 years ago.]

The team from New Zealand is racing against Italy in the finals of the challenger series. I'm rooting for New Zealand to win the whole thing. But if it were to be Italy vs. Switzerland, I'd support the Swiss.

I'm watching race #3 right now. It looks like NZ is about to go up 3-0 in this best of 9 series.
