It's Just Like A Barn

I wanted to send out my heartfelt congratulations to the winners of this year's Ryder Cup, which ended yesterday with a handshake between Jim Furyk and Miguel Angel Jiminez.
Apparently, golf's not too popular a sport in Italy, as I couldn't find coverage one on television here in Milan. So, thank heavens for ESPN mobile, which provided regular updated scores via my Blackberry.
This was the first U.S. victory in the Ryder Cup since 1999 at Brookline, and it was a long time coming.
According to the coverage I've been able to unearth, both teams turned in some remarkable performances, including newcomer Anthony Kim, who seems to have put Sergio Garcia through the ringer yesterday.
While the U.S. was out winning on the golf course, ZDNet's Tom Steinert-Threlkeld blogged about the art of video advertising online, featuring none other than the IBM "Art of the Sale" series of videos touting IBM mainframe computers.
If you've not yet seen the video, I'd urge you to go to YouTube and see for yourself.
But, the entire series is pretty funny and definitely worth checking out.
And if you remember nothing else, remember this: It's just like a barn.
