USA Keeps The America's Cup!
|Team USA crossing the finish line!|
I have no idea how I got so caught up in this in less than a week but when it hit me, it was amazingly exciting!
The US gets to keep the Cup and someone else paid for it! So our billionaire might be a good guy after all. Well, maybe.
I haven't heard from the kids so I'm suspecting that there's some office celebrating going on since 3 of them work in San Francisco. Lauren is very close to where the finish line is. She's just a block or so off the Bay Bridge that you see in the background of most of these photos. Kevin and DDL Lauren both work in the Financial District which I'm guessing is about 3 miles away and Drew works a couple of miles from the Coast on the other side of the Bay, which appears in one of these pictures too.
The Bay Bridge in the background - the one Lauren crosses every morning at around 6:00 a.m and
does a return trip around 7:00 p.m.
|Excuse my TV cabinet in the top of these pictures - I should have cropped them all. San Francisco is on the left side of this photo.|
|The finish. Right by the Bay Bridge.|
|The Skipper, Jimmy Spithill, married to an American - well, that makes it a bit more meaningful.|

Congratulations Team USA. And Larry, our favorite billionaire.
