Granted, I”m not a sporting historian, but if anyone knows a bigger, more spectacular come-from-behind sporting victory than this famous America’s Cup victory by James Spithill’s and Team Oracle, then let us know.
These boys started at minus 2. They were down on the canvas with a broken arm at 8-1. Yet they got up, focussed, fixed things, and came out to win, eight straight, against the very best Team NZ could try to throw at them.
That right there is the work of deserving champions.
So stop whinging New Zealand, and start recognising greatness when you see it.
And start being thankful our pockets aren’t going to be picked to “rebuild” the Auckland Viaduct in the vision of Len Brown and Stephen Joyce.
