San Francisco: U.S. team wins the America's Cup
Never say never. That might well have been the motto of the U.S. team in the America's Cup finals Wednesday staged in San Francisco. Emirates Team New Zealand was leading 8-1 in this race, whose history dates to 1851. But Oracle Team USA came back, besting the team from Down Under by 9-8. It was a thrilling end to what San Francisco had dubbed the "summer of racing." Here are a few scenes from Wednesday.
