Jimmy Spithill gets a lesson about dogs and lamp posts

Jimmy Spithill has got in a spot of bother, though his advice about social media is spot on.

Oracle Team USA skipper Jimmy Spithill isn’t apologising, but obviously regrets the fuss caused by his social media “f-bomb” before America’s Cup racing this morning.

The brash Aussie, who has rediscovered his sailing mojo over the past couple of days, rallied his supporters on Twitter ahead of today’s competition, but quickly had to remove his x-rated post when it went viral.

“There’s no ‘I’ in Just Beat the F***ers”, Spithill tweeted.

“I think if you get offended easily, you should probably stay away from social media,” he explained, when quizzed at the daily media conference.?

Emirates Team NZ though were just playing with him on the weekend.
