Welcome back sports fans!
Here we are back another year (or two) older and none wiser.
For the 2012 edition, flash across the pond, we have a considerably upgraded and flash ride. You see as we get older we more appreciate the creature comforts and Narrow Escape was just getting a little too narrow.
Now the new boat, on the other hand, is the lap of luxury in the accommodations department! You will find the softest pipe berths ever built, Refrigeration - if you remember the ice - and standing headroom for Midgets (The Dessert Fox) and an enclosed shoe horn style Head.
I will be filling you in over the next few days about the crew roster including pictures (Mug Shots) so you can get the names and the players straight.
In the meantime check back here often to see how the race unfolds.
