Australia II (KA 6) is an Australian 12-metre-class America's Cup challenge racing yacht that was launched in 1982[1] and won the 1983 America's Cup for the Royal Perth Yacht Club. Skippered by John Bertrand, she was the first successful Cup challenger, ending a 132-year tenure (with 26 successful defences) by the New York Yacht Club.

There are numerous college football stadiums in the US that have an official capacity of over 90,000 and 8 that are over 100,000 (4 of which are currently in the SEC with a 5th scheduled to join in a couple of years). 

 

Quite a few colleges with such stadiums are in small towns that see their population double or triple on the day a home game is played.  Auburn University has a stadium that seats over 90K- the population of the entire town is just over 80,000- for example.  It would have topped 100K except the Powers That Be decided to put luxury boxes up instead of seats in the last end zone expansion.

For us Yanks, from the Internet:

Devils on horseback are a hot appetizer or small savoury dish of dried fruit stuffed with such ingredients as cheese or nuts, wrapped in bacon prosciutto or pancetta. The traditional form of the dish is made with a pitted prune and bacon, but dates are also used, usually steeped in brandy or some other liqueur.

 

My comment:

Anything wrapped with bacon will be good!

It's impressive just how many there are down there. Thanks for posting them up. We won't care if you repeat a few as we won't remember either!

We use little bitty weenies, wrapped in bacon, spear them with a toothpick and drive the toothpick into a slice of water chestnut for a flat base.

Bake at 350 for a half hour.

Remove from oven, baste with a ketchup-and-brown-sugar mixture, give it another ten minutes in the oven.

Great favorite for get togethers!

These, though, will bear a try!
