TNT's "Inside the NBA" had a rough start Tuesday night when Shaquille O'Neal's cell phone went off. He then tossed it to a producer who dropped it and it clattered to the floor. In the middle of all of this, Shaq accidentally unhooked his microphone so someone had to run in to fix it. All of which was a perfect setup for Charles Barkley.
You HAVE to love this. Musicians at violinist Lukas Kmit's level are usually wound pretty tight, but this guy is smooth enough to take the obvious irritation of being interrupted, turn it on its head, and send it right back at the rude person who couldn't turn his phone off!
In response to the National Transportation Safety Board-proposed ban on cellphones while driving, the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers tried to defend hands-free devices. They’re “designed to be used in a way that helps drivers keep their eyes on the road,” they said, but now it looks like this defense doesn’t hold water.
