It’s Official. Everyone has a cellphone.

I knew that 100% cell phone saturation wasn’t far away when my 12 year old sister called me from her brand-new cellphone the other day… HELLO! I fought tooth and nail to get my own line all the way through high school, and my parents wouldn’t budge.

Now calls to the bullpen will be placed via cell too… The Cubs get to be early adopters thanks to Motorola. The Cubbies dugout will be equiped with some fancy, loud, vibrating and modified i580’s. While I understand the reasoning behind this, the excuse they point to in the USA Today article seems pretty weak: “The new system, if it catches on, figures to cut down on long trips to the end of the bullpen to answer the phone.”

Heaven forbid we have to walk to answer the phone.
