It appears that they've programmed the voice recognition to ignore b*tch, @sshole, f-cker, f-ck you, f-ck this, f-ck it all to hell, and eat sh-t as well. None of those seem to work, at least not for me.

I'm honestly surprised the automated systems haven't learned to hang up on me yet.

screaming OPERATOR repeatedly at a robot voicemail attendant who doesn't understand what you need

So relieved I'm not the only one that does this. I'm sure those automated services record all the calls. I fear that some day tape will emerge of me raging at that auto-attendant. I've frequently called him/her some terrible things and I'm usually quite embarrassed afterwards.

For the life of me, I can't understand why I haven't watched one of these games yet. As I've written on this site many times, the 2011 basketball team was my favorite in any sport at any time.  Hopefully I'll have time to watch today.

As an aside (and this may have already been mentioned here), HBO is currently airing a four part documentary called The Defiant Ones about the partnership between Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre which eventually led to the $3 billion deal for Beats. It is a fascinating look into the dying record industry and a must watch for any audiophiles whether you like rap or not.  Anyway, our very own Aaron Craft makes a brief and conspicuous cameo in part 4 (I think it will air tonight for those without the HBO app). I think he was an odd choice to illustrate how Beats headphones have permeated the sports and pop cultures but I love that they chose him. I'm guessing some low level assistant producer who was assigned with pulling random clips of people wearing Beats headphones is an Ohio State grad and he cleverly crowbarred Craft in there. Give it a watch. You will not be disappointed.

Whoa....DV'd into greydom for that?! I didn't even realize this was a hot take. Well, it appears that after almost 7 mediocre years on this site, the 11W commenting game has passed me by. I'm going to follow Matta's and Stoops' lead and tomorrow Jason Priestas and I will be holding a press conference to announce my retirement from this site. Unlike those two coaches, however, I will not remain involved in a consulting capacity.  I will just create a bunch of phantom accounts which I will use to sneakily downvote my enemies.

But seriously...Allen, Laetner, Reddick, Parks, Wojciechowski. That's basically a hall of fame starting five of talented, entitled dbag basketballers.

Slow down with the Coach K talk. That would truly set the world on fire.  There is a generation of talented, entitled,  d-bag basketballers who happen to be white that would have nowhere to go without him. They would just aimlessly roam the country being pricks.

Like Matta, Stoops' best years were behind him but no way OU fires him, at least not for on the field performance.  He was still winning meaningless B12 championships and 10+ games a season.  That's good enough at OU I think.

Oh man....

I've been familiar with their music for a little over a year now but only just found out a few months ago that they are from Cbus. No idea how that fact could have escaped me with as much time as I spend on this site.  Anyway, I've been obsessed with Twenty One Pilots since then, an obsession shared by my kids (13, 10, 7). I think it's pretty cool to be able to bond with them over music. I'm generally the 'get off my lawn' type when it comes to new music.  Not with these guys though.
