LOL
I heard one that was OK... at the end of the Cadillac commercials, they say "Cadillac. Breakthrough." That was on a pretty sweet sig of cadillac on the Buccaneers official message board.

The one on Cadillac on the PR homepage is especially bad.  Come on, guys.  You don't need to resort to that tedious crap.



That is what prompted the post, didnt get to read the whole think cos I was too busy yakking in my trash can  [banghead]

I'm afraid I have to agree with you guys.  A few of these car metaphors are to be expected, but their over-use in that article was particularly egregious.

You should post this in the Cove. It's off topic for football. You all seem concerned with grammar, spelling, sentences, metaphors etc. Topic should be critical writing.

Praise for the PR guys when they deliver a great article (which is frequently) isn't considered off-topic, so crtiticism, on the rare occasions when they deliver a stinker, should not be either.

I think they should play "been a long time" every time he runs.  Better than the race-car sounds, and double meanings too!

Been a Long Time as in the song by Black Label Society, or Rock and Roll by Led Zeppelin which is in the Cadillac car commercial and whose chorus is "Been a long time, been a long time, been a long lonely lonely lonely lonely been a long time..."?
