Be prepared for big crowds on the bay front tomorrow.

Just stunning. I know nothing about sailing and have no idea what the commentators on TV were talking about. But watching those big catamarans flying through the water is really exciting. With Oracle Open World here in SF, unbelievably Team Oracle just won two races today to pull even with Team NZ. So one race tomorrow to win it all. If you are anywhere along the water front tomorrow, expect huge crowds.

thanks for the heads up. tomorrow's race, i think is questionable because they are expecting strong winds. belo - glad to see you're not yawning about this ;)

Funny to read that Ellison blew off Oracle Open World to watch the race instead. He was supposed to deliver a keynote address at the conference.

The best one can say about Larry is he's an odd duck. And I suppose if you have the billions he does, why not blow off your business for your hobby? I mean, whose going to fire him?

But the Golden Gate Yacht Club certainly loves him (shhhh, don't ask St. Francis members what they think of him LOL).

Avoid driving into the City in general- to many Oracle World people also are clogging up the roads, I got stuck this AM coming up 101.

1:15 PDT or 13:15 Pacific Daylight Time for all our non American readers. Watch it anywhere NBC Sports Network is carried or if you are outside the US on the youtube channel live.

If you see people with Oracle badges in SF. Just tell them you like Microsoft SQL Server better :-)
