    Default Bravo Eugenia

    This is anchored out in Elliot Bay this weekend. BRAVO EUGENIA belongs to the owner of the Dallas Cowboys.

    358 feet LOA, carries 14 guests and 30 crew.

    [I have seen fuglier though.]

    Explain to me again why tax dollars go to build stadiums and arenas for professional sportball teams, and to subsidize them?

    There are now several wealthy folks in the U.S. who are worth over $100 billion.

    Might have something to do with the monies donated to political campaigns.

    I was happy when Seattle said "No" and let the basketball team leave.

    At least the late Paul Allen's yacht was tasteful (at least from the outside, never saw photos of the inside), and equipped and used for offshore research in addition to personal conveniences and luxury. Which, by the way, is still up for sale, last I saw.
    When you can take the pebble from my hand, it will be time for you to leave.

    Paul Allen was always a great owner for the Trail Blazers. And my impression is that same about the Seahawks.

    I was sad to see the Sonics leave. Great rivalry scuttled. But I don't blame Seattle for telling the overweening slimeball owner to invest his own money rather than demand the taxpayers pay more than their share. Cities benefit economically from sports franchises. But owners benefit more. Far more.

    Shouldn't it be 'Brava"?
