“I’ve heard some people try to compare the Super Bowl to the America’s Cup. That’s like comparing football to yachting, it doesn’t make sense”
So that’s the Party Line these days, Comrade. But let’s travel back in time to get a different take.
“We have proven we can successfully host the world’s biggest events, including the MLB World Series in 2010 and 2012, the America’s Cup in 2013 and Super Bowl 50 in 2016″
And on and on.
The report found that the increase in overall economic activity in San Francisco hosting the 34th America’s Cup could be on the order of $1.4 billion, almost three times the estimated impact of hosting the Super Bowl ($300-$500 million).
So, if the “East Coast Media,” that monolith, mocks us from New Yawk, DeeCee, and Bahstahn, well, perhaps we deserve it, non?
