America's Cup races begin Monday. Two yachts, just three races, $400 million total dollars spent (not including attorney and court costs for the legal wrangling).

That lawsuit was just absurd, but then we're talking about Larry Ellison.

Only two boats in the America's Cup - seriously?

Dusted: due to the lawsuits, inability to agree on anything, etc., the Cup is gone back to the Deed of Gift setup.

As someone who grew up on Aquidneck Island during the height of the America's Cup, I have to say they've done an amazing job making it disappear. I can't muster up any interest. Then again, sailing's not the most telegenic sport, even when it's edited together after the fact.

I think if they combined it with another sport I'd watch. Like olympic rowing.
