Certainly not a flattering article for Larry Brown. Too bad.

Has anyone else been having trouble with ESPN.com today (really slow-loading pages)? Not that I've spent an absurd amount on the interweb today or anything...:o

Clearing my cache seems to have cleared the problem and generally sped things up. Most importantly, I was able to get another two posts out of the deal. You can all breathe easier now.

Yo.

More seriously (but still off-topic, that's just how I roll), my aunt works at MD Anderson UT Medical Center (big name in cancer research I think) in Houston. All the doctors still had pagers as late as ~2006. They've all been handed BlackBerrys now. Also, my wife worked at the Duke Hospital in 2007 - I'm told the doctors had text-pagers, which I guess is like SMS without a reply function.

Duke Blue planet has a handy TV schedule (http://www.dukeblueplanet.com/FileCache/2008/07_July/2008%20USA%20Basketball%20Olympic%20TV%20Schedule. pdf) for Team USA. Team USA is on ESPN tonight at 8 pm Vs. Canada.

Continuing the OT slide...
We have text pagers at my company, too. It's ridiculous. We, the engineering department, have proposed that the company just give us the $5-$8/month to reimburse us for the cost of using our personal cell phones as a replacement. They haven't gone for it yet... so we all carry a cell phone and pager.
