Dean Barker: "I'm coming for you sucker!"

VALENCIA - Team New Zealand was still dangerous, warned skipper Dean Barker after Alinghi took a seemingly impregnable 4-2 lead in the 32nd America's Cup this morning.
"We still have a chance," Barker told a post-race press conference.
"We are still a very dangerous team; I have complete confidence in the entire team.
"We are good enough to get back into it and there is still a chance we will be right there."
However, Barker - always a low-key individual - seemed a little more subdued this morning as the Kiwis realised they could now not afford to drop a singleone of the last three races.
