Even with its massive and crazy-fast sailboats looming over and zipping by the San Francisco shore, the 2013 America?s Cup started off pretty boring. Emirates Team New Zealand was up six races to one, and then 8-3. But then the U.S. started winning. All told, seven in a row! Yesterday, backs still up against the wall, Oracle Team USA won two more races causing CEO Larry Ellison to skip out on delivering the keynote at his own conference, Oracle OpenWorld, one of the other biggest events of the year in San Francisco.
