The rest of the nation is looking forward to an overload of football to go with the overload of food this long weekend. But did you know you could be watching exciting yacht racing instead? The Bay Area's Genny Tulloch anchors updates on the Volvo Ocean Racing site. The U.S. even has a team in the game, Alvimedica. And, with the all-female crew of SCA in the mix, it's not dudes-only.
