(March 12, 2010) It is fair to say that there was a lot of suffering that occurred during the 33rd America's Cup. After the exceedingly close racing that was offered in 2007 during the 32nd Match in Valencia, we were ready for the good times to keep rolling. However, that's not what we got. After nearly three years of legal wrangling, we only got two races of maxi multihull frostbiting last month. Not good.
But that's not to say it can't get good again, and what better way to energize the soul than to look back to the way we were. This week we feature two videos, one which features the call by T2P Tucker Thompson of the most amazing Race 7 between Alinghi and Emirates Team New Zealand. And the other video by Barbra Streisand, belting out her legendary 1975 song, "The Way We Were".

Barbara Streisand : The Way We Were Lyrics
Memories, light the corners of my mind
Misty watercolor memories of the way we were.
Scattered pictures of the smiles we left behind
smiles we give to one another
for the way we were.
Can it be that it was all so simple then
or has time rewritten every line?
If we had the chance to do it all again
tell me would we? Could we?
Memories, may be beautiful and yet
what's too painful to remember
we simply choose to forget
So it's the laughter we will remember
whenever we remember
the way we were.
