Here's more evidence that in major sports, winning isn't the most important thing, it's the only thing. Dennis Conner will go down in yacht racing history as the only skipper to lose the America's Cup twice. No matter that he is also the only one to win it three times (plus a fourth at the helm). He's a loser, beaten at his own game by many of his old tactics -- and by a much nicer bunch of guys.New Zealand's triumph in what many regard as the crowning event in world-class sailing may prove another turning point in the America's Cup's 144-year history.

Four-time champion Italy was on the wrong end of the latest surprising result at this year's World Cup, held to a 1-1 draw Sunday by New Zealand. The defending champ Italians got their only goal in the Group F match in Nelspruit from the penalty spot, further exposing its lack of finishing power up front. New Zealand took the lead against Italy when Shane Smeltz tapped in a ball that had glanced off defender Fabio Cannavaro in the seventh minute. It was New Zealand's only shot on goal the entire match and beat Federico Marchetti, who was replacing injured veteran Gianluigi Buffon.

Wine of the week 1994 Peter Lehmann Barossa Semillon ($10). This Australian dry white wine won't appeal to everyone, but if you have an adventurous palate you might enjoy its exotic flavors of pineapple, herbs, melon, apricots and even a touch of kiwi. This white might be a bit too much if it didn't finish with a crisp splash of acidity. It's a fun wine you can serve with spicy foods. Pub date: 9/01/96

2001 The Crossings Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, Awatere Valley ($16). This dramatic sauvignon blanc from New Zealand blazes across the palate with concentrated, uncompromising flavors of pear, herbs, juniper and -- dare I say -- kiwi. The New Zealand sauvignon blancs aren't for everyone, but in the last decade or so, they have emerged as the most compelling "new" wine style on the planet. Serve this textbook example with seafood, salad or any spicy cuisine that is not sweet.

Check any dictionary and you'll find that the word "parrot" means, among other things, to ape, to mimic, to emulate. But for the past six years, very little has been derivative in the life of Janice Rothe, a veteran Baltimore County teacher who took a year's sabbatical in 1995 after a student attacked her. During that time off, what seemed like a picayune family decision altered her life, and her family's, as surely as a nestling takes wing. Maybe she just needed a distraction. Maybe, like most career teachers, she's naturally inquisitive.

AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- Wonder why, for the first time in 149 years, there was no American boat in the America's Cup race here? Look no further than bearded, California yachting guru Doug Peterson. Described in the official race program as "the hottest America's Cup designer," he has almost single-handedly scuttled U.S. chances in the past two Cup competitions. First, he was a lead designer of the New Zealand boat, Black Magic, that brought the Cup to Auckland in 1995 by defeating veteran U.S. skipper Dennis Conner, 5-0, in San Diego.

AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- Prada boss Patrizio Bertelli accused his Italian team of "suicidal tactics" after its fourth straight loss to New Zealand today all but doomed its chances in the first-to-five America's Cup. The Italians now face sudden death in the competition for racing's most prestigious trophy which could end as early as tomorrow (tonight in Baltimore). One more loss in any of the next five races, and the Italians can pack their bags for the trip back to their home berth on the Tuscan coast of northwest Italy to prepare for next time.

AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- With the stakes rapidly narrowing down to triumph or survival, the America's Cup racing was abandoned here today for the third time for lack of stable winds on the notoriously fickle Hauraki Gulf. The postponement of Race 4 leaves Team New Zealand, with a faster boat and more experienced crew, still poised for victory with a 3-0 lead over the Italians in the first-to-five competition. With Kiwi skipper Russell Coutts enjoying dominance in every dimension of the races -- boat design, sailing skills and start-box tactics -- Italian skipper Francesco de Angelis is in danger of humiliation.

AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- Team New Zealand tightened its grip on the 30th America's Cup today, scoring its third straight win over the Italians in the first-to-five competition and winning a hero's welcome from its home crowd. New Zealand is within two races of repeating the 5-0 whitewashing it administered to U.S. skipper Dennis Conner in San Diego to win the Cup five years ago and of becoming the first non-Americans in the race's 149-year history to defend the title. "We just managed to get ahead," said Kiwi tactician Brad Butterworth, a longtime sailing partner of winning skipper Russell Coutts.

AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- The 30th America's Cup between New Zealand and Italy here is turning out to be a competition between innovation and grace, and at the moment, innovation is winning, 2-0. The New Zealand boat, Black Magic, is turning out to be a real box of tricks -- above and below the water line. The Italian boat, Luna Rossa, is a classic 75-foot Cup racer, the fine-lined product of the big-spending Prada syndicate. It was so sleek and fast during the past four months as it sped past 10 other boats from six nations to win the challengers' series that it earned the nickname "Silver Bullet."
