I made the mistake of going to the TaylorMade web site again, which nearly made me barf. I go there a two times a year. It takes me 6 months to forget the last time I guess.
I was there no more that 12 seconds before I just closed the window and left. The flash stuff is so irritating, nauseating, clunky, counter intuitive, time wasting, bandwidth eating… I just want to find some info on their damn drivers and read about it, not see metallic looking contraptions spin around, morph into different shapes and hear cheesy sound effects. I clicked through the locker room, club house, out house and cat house. I clicked “skip” as many times as I could. I got lost in the animations and sound effects then felt close to losing my nachos. I thought I was watching another transformers movie. I had to bail.
I’m going to be fine, really
Sorry about that TaylorMade web site rant. I’ll take a breath. I’m OK. I’ll be fine.
The point I meant to talk about was “speed.” While watching today’s final of the Accenture Match Play Championship, TaylorMade mentioned “speed” in a TV ad for the new drivers a few minutes ago. A couple of ads later a Callaway spot says “inspired by speed.” Cobra talks speed too.
