Dickhead Larry Ellison Skips Work to Watch Sailboat Race

When you're one of the richest men in the world and supreme software asshole non plus ultra, flaking out on a 60,000 person conference to watch your yacht team instead is totally cool.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports Ellison was going to show up for his second keynote address, swearsies, but something came up:

Ellison was nowhere near the Moscone Convention Center because he was on the bay cheering on the Oracle Team USA crew as they tied up the America’s Cup finals, setting up a thrilling winnner-take-all match Wednesday.

After he went through all the trouble of cheating, he might as well see it through.
