A fellow sailor just asked, Youre still writing about the Americas Cup? I thought it was over! Can Team USA Win? Until yesterday, a lot of people had written off the 34th Americas Cup. But now, folks are starting to pay attention. Last week, it looked like Emirates Team Team New Zealand would walk away with the Cup; they were up seven races to one in a first-to-nine series. (Team USA must win 11 due to a penalty.) The tides have turned and Oracle Oracle Team USA has sailed and won four consecutive races. Team New Zealand leads with eight races while Oracle closes in with five. Larry Ellison has cracked a smile, finally The contest has become a nail biter, the machines are incredible and the sailing has been great, said Brad Read, multi-class world champion and executive director of Sail Newport in Newport, RI. (Reads brother is one of the on-air Cup commentators for NBC.) Team New Zealand needs one more win to take the Cupbut they just cant close. Momentum is the most under rated force in sport, said Trinity College squash coach Paul Assaiante who well understands the dynamics of winning. He coached the team with the longest winning streak in the history of any intercollegiate sport. The losing team is relentless because they are one breath away from being deadand thats the most dangerous animal. Oracle Team USA has been pretty dangerous. Yesterday, they navigated the Bays tricky tides and fluky winds to win races 14 and 15. Oracle Tactician Sir Ben Ainslie executed a risky two-tack sequence to put Team USA firmly in the lead on the last leg of one race. (Tacks take away boat speed, the fewer tacks the better.) And while, sadly, Team USA does not have the entire nation behind them, Emirates Team New Zealand has their whole country, about four and a half million sailing fans, weighing on them. Lets hope Team New Zealand can find its closer mentality. Yankees Mariano Rivera has it, Read told me, Lets hope Team New Zealand finds its inner-Rivera! Today marks the 13th day of racing, making it the longest series in the Cups 132-year history. As one commentator put it, The Summer of Racing has become a Fall Classic.

Bear with us here. The “Born in the USA” singer, born in working-class New Jersey 64 years ago today, cemented our country’s patriotic look in the the most basic way possible. Bruce performed in simple, no-frills outfits that allowed his star power to shine through during his notoriously lengthy performances. (And he’s still in fine physical form — here’s proof .) For Springsteen, the American flag is the ultimate accessory, and looks best unadorned, unencumbered by the flashy fashions his rock star peers preferred in the ’70s and ’80s. Here’s 10 tips the living legend taught us about getting dressed: Bruce conveys his love for his country through his color palette. He believes in his guns, and his right to bear (bare) arms. Bruce proves hats don’t have to be disrespectful. He knows when to give his feet a rest. And that leather always looks cool. But wearing an undershirt as an only shirt keeps sweat at a minimum. And black doesn’t have to be funereal. The more denim, the better.
