How does this summer compare to say 1992?  That was a very active year, too, right?

I say add a drain plug and line it with PlastiDip when the baby is done with it. Instant cool party cooler!

Hell, if he wanted to keep it on the Bay, he could build his own compound/complex in Alameda for the syndicates, run the races on the City Front, and fuck all to SF by having parties, events, and ferries run to Alameda.


By giving RC an edict to squeeze blood from any bidder, and incentivize him to keep the LE outlay as small as possible, the circus is moving to a new location.


^^ I agree here, but irregardless of the monetary deals I think even if LE were to just foot the whole bill there would be plenty of do gooders to muck-up the works. Even if he outright bought the piers someone would be upset and have Peskin block it any way he could, for example.


Think about it this way though: if LE just ponied-up the money for every AC during the rest of his days, no matter whether he was a defender or challenger, what would happen after his time and the successors decided "hey, that was LE's playtoy, not ours, and we're not supporting it any more"?

 And last time, fundraising in SF was a failure.


My take is that folks in the Bay Area, including the tech stalwarts in Silicon Valley, did not see value in underwriting the hobby of one of the biggest tech assholes around.  Knowing that he has billions of dollars in his coffers, why support him?
