Haha you can guarantee 3 things, if they successfully defend this time:Overblown hyperbole. Sounds like the sort of speil chundered out with the help of a couple of tequilas and some good drugs. Hard to take any of it seriously, especially the part that the cup will be back.
Once gone, it will never return. Once the present team loses it, there will be no more Team New Zealand. Ever.
As for blaming a myopic Auckland and government for letting go an event that put NZ on the map. Really, what total uniformed dickhead. We were an unknown country until the cup put us on the map. A bellend full of his own amazingness, a legend in his own lunch box.
1) They'll get a welcome home parade up Queen Street
2) The next defence will be in Auckland
3) Gissie will still be crying, then switch from LR to another team to support like the bandwagon jumper he is.
