Jimmy Spithill (an Ozzie) skippered Oracle Team USA from an 8-1 deficit to freakin’ even-up the America’s Cup series at 8-8 in seven straight wins against Emirates Team New Zealand to move on to the final race in a winner-take-all tomorrow (Wed). This could turn out to be one of the greatest sports comeback of all time in what has turned out to be an incredibly exciting sport. If you haven’t watched the racing this year, you haven’t seen … well, whatever it is. Engineering, tactics, fortunes, athleticism!

The race tomorrow is for all the marbles.
