America’s Cup? Whazzat? UEFA Cup? Whazzat?

Does anyone remember the America’s Cup? Big gorgeous sailboats, all high-tech stuff and rich people, racing off Newport? A Very Big Deal not too long ago.

Today in The Boston Globe, on page D3, the AC got a couple of hundred words announcing that the American entry, owned by software mogul Larry Ellison, was tromped by the Italians (viva la Italia!) and will not even make it to what amounts to the semifinals.

In other sporting news, there was not one word of this Wednesday’s soccer final match for the prestigious UEFA cup, between AC Milan and Liverpool.

Not only has the irrelevant fallen, but the relevant can’t even get space on the sports page.
