Marshawn wheels Rebecca in from somewhere, and they're like, "Yeah, that's...some batting cage," and Marshawn interviews how the cage taking up "most of the diamond" changed the entire concept -- you can't have different stations at each base, which was the whole good idea for this task. Josh continues to push the products further and further out of the way until they're actually driving away in the Lamborghini from ten weeks ago.
Meanwhile at Capital Edge, there are these giant crossed golf clubs providing a Disney-esque gate into the Golf Wonderland our A Team has created. It looks awesome -- there's a fairway, which, as Alla VOs, divides the whole experience into three stations: "Fashion," with the very attractive/flattering/sexy golf clothes and accessories we all love to look at with our eyeballs; "Function," the actual clinic part; and "Family Fun," which is the point: a tiny putting green area for the kids that amounts to a very simple mini-golf course. (And with bowling, that's two "sports" I hate more than any other. ["You hate bowling? My God, man, who hired you?" -- Sars]) Clay bitches at Felisha about where he wants to place the products as Alla is standing there lecturing everybody about, you know, the task. He does that same matronly "Listen before you start talking…" stuff from before, trailing off like somebody's spinster aunt again, and the oboes of Markus begin to play. You know that shit bugs me. Have the courage of your convictions! Speak in the moment instead of doing everything for fucking effect! You're a smart, strong, powerful man! Stop acting like some episode of Designing Women you saw when I was five! I want to like you so badly! I've never recapped a show with a gay guy named Clay before! I want to know what that's like!
Randal interviews in a very Randal way about how he watched Felisha and Alla finally learn the deal with Clay, about how he's worked with him on two teams now, and that he's a "a difficult person to work with because he's always talking about what's wrong with an idea, what he doesn't like about the idea," which, that's exactly why Markus bugs me, Reason #235, but a major one, and I've discussed it before, because ultimately that can be a manager's best friend or his or her worst enemy, and nobody to this point has used either of their complaining asses correctly, which is to -- I don't want to freak you out -- use it instead of bitching about it, and let them bounce some shit off of you, instead of wandering aimlessly (in the second case) or skipping rope and jumping hopscotch (in the first), because they're obviously smart guys, with some limitations about teamwork, and that's your fucking job as PM. I know I'm hard on them both, but, like, it's mostly couch-quarterback frustration at them being so misused. Deductive reasoning and reductive thinking are the hallmarks of most industry, bitches! Sir Arthur Conan Doyle would have your ass!
