Nah, she was a hottie but she was only 20.
By 30 she probably would have had a moustache, chest hair, etc.
Greek guy I used to work with told me this joke.
Q: Why do Greeks wear gold chains?
A: So they know when to stop shaving.
Just Italian journalists being as ridiculous as the NZ journalists.
Of course the local journos are going to play up to the local crowd by saying ETNZ are fucking awesome regardless of whether they are or not.
Storm in a teacup.
Yeah, of course he will.
If (when) LR lose, it will be largely due to superior design.
Burling is a more talented sailor IMO, but that won't be the deciding factor.
Aside from that, contrast him with Barker (who I doubt will be back) and Jimmy has won the thing twice - once under the most...
I don't have too much of a problem with Jimmy. Not my cup of tea, but shrug.
Two points I would make are:
1. Jimmy's public persona is just that of a stereotypically overly brash ocker.
2. It is just that, a persona.
He is probably fairly brash, but fuck knows if he is that brash.
On a more serious note, why the hell wouldn't he come over?
If (and thats a BIG if) LR win this thing, surely he'd want to be here to help hoist the cup?
Even if they don't win, it'd be a fucking awesome time.
However THIS time seems different.
The boat is still beautiful, but not as much as previous cups (I for one liked AM's boat the most).
If you look at this cup, they seem to have MUCH more of a professional focus (no cigarettes, more aggressive as CoR, etc).
Well, they were certainly snug.
I can remember thinking I knew Max way more that I would like to ;)
But the boat was just gorgeous. Its a shame that didn't go the same way with this one as I think the monohull would have looked even more so.
San Francisco for me undoubtedly cos I already had the match done and dusted in my mind.
Also, watching so many other kiwis kick fuck out of Dalts, Barker and the rest of Etnz after a magnificent effort made thing extra crappy.
