True story: Last week Sunday morning, I was sitting at the lounge area of my health club
– yeah, my health club has a lounge area; it’s my favorite part of working out –
waiting for Sweetie, and I was listening to people all around me talking about Wisconsin losing to Michigan State the night before
- Yeah, I eavesdrop on people around me; it’s my second-favorite part of working out –
So I decided to check it out for myself, and pulled out my phone, went online, found the highlights from the final play, and watched it, sitting right there. And that’s when I realized two things:
1. Wisconsin fans are complainers; the ball clearly got across the line, so relax, and
2. Wisconsin fans are cheap.
I realized that last part because all of the people around me who had been just talking about the play gathered around me to watch the play, all of them relying on my phone.
Look, I know you all think that cell phones are expensive. They’re NOT, not if you’re, you know, SMART about things. You can get a smart phone with unlimited net access for just $50 a month.
How do I know that? Because I’m smart, and also because I listen to What Rob has to say and I watch commercials like this:

Just $50 a month gets you unlimited calling, texting, and data, and the plans are incredibly easy to set up. You buy the phone, you go online to their site, and you activate your phone. You can even keep your number.
The phones are trusted, name brands like LG and Nokia, and all the other ones your kids talk about and you don’t understand. You don’t have to sign up for a contract, and you can switch plans at any time. No activation fees, no switch fees, no disconnect fees, and they’ve probably got a plan that’s tailored just for you.
You can find out more by checking them out on
Or by listening to a Real NET10 customer like this:

Get your own phone, and with the money you save, you can probably buy yourself some Michigan State Rose Bowl tickets.
