    Andrew Simpson died Thursday when the AC72 on which he was riding capsized off the coast of San Francisco. RIP. This is the second capsizing since these boats debuted. Makes you wonder, so close to the event, if the power that be do something to downplay the speed. You don't want a death on live television come October.

    But it also begs the question: What's the worst way to die? Drowning is up there, but fire has to be No. 1.
