of all time. dennis, this is a storybook ending. >> reporter: it's incredible, ken. tonight in new zealand, i think the kiwis are pondering perhaps the biggest collapse in america's cup history while in america, and certainly right here in the bay area, sailing fans are thinking, this might be the biggest comeback in sports history. and not the collapse. how much worse could it get for the kiwis? they were penalized for bumping team oracle as they jockeyed for position at the start line making it a wire-to-wire victory for team oracle and in the second race team oracle came storming back to win by 54 seconds and even up the series at eight apiece setting up a winner-take-all race tomorrow afternoon. so i watched the race from the marina green today while our fellow reporter don ford was right here at the finish line at pier 27 and to get it all from the fans after yet another improbable victory.

employees, and just hire joe schmoe off the street. it's not that easy. >> reporter: but jed thinks bart workers need a reality check. >> what would be their chances of replacing their current position with something that's sort of equally attractive in terms of compensation? and i think it's probably low for many of the bart workers so in that sense, they are doing pretty well. >> i don't feel like i'm being greedy. at the end of the day, it's about my family. >> reporter: there's no doubt those who operate these trains have benefits worth fighting for. the big question is, at what cost? in oakland, ryan takeo, kpix 5. >> she hopes it's only a matter of time before she becomes full time and can get though full time benefits. san francisco home prices climbing faster than practically anywhere else in the country according to a key index. prices jumped almost 25% from a year ago. and that's one of the biggest jumps in the country. second only to las vegas. meanwhile, u.s. home prices jumped the most in 7 years up
