You damn kids! Get off my lawn! Okay, maybe these guys sound like grouchy old men- scratch that- these guys definitely sound like grouchy old men, but you can't say that they don't have a point. I am like a lost puppy without my cell phone just like every other member of my generation, but that doesn't make it any less nauseating when I'm at bar with friends and look up to see us all buried in our own technology. While I expect that phenomenon to be even more prevalent amongst a group of sorority girls at a baseball game they care nothing about, it's pretty sobering to see a group of 8 girls, with 6 glued to their phone, and 5 taking nonstop selfies. There's just no event boring enough to justify this level of narcissism when you are with 7 others girls that you undoubtedly pretend are your best friends. These broads were on their phones so long that I am surprised they didn't get a text from one of their other friends that they were on TV. Then again, those friends were probably sitting on the couch too enamored with their phones to even catch what was on the screen. Sucks for them. Kind of ironic that these girls that were so obsessed with showing everyone how they look that they missed a golden opportunity to show a television audience how they look. Doing duck faces may look cute on your personal 6 inch screen, but you look like a fucking asshole in HD.
I refuse to criticize these announcers for ragging on a bunch of self centered sorority sluts. You ever tried to fill 3.5 hours of airtime during a meaningless September baseball game? These guys were at the mercy of whatever was put in front of them besides a terribly boring baseball game. You want to blame someone then blame the camera guy. He's the one responsible for focusing on these bitches for what felt like an hour. He's the reason I am sitting here making completely hypocritical statements about needless cell phone usage. He's the reason we just got a nice long glimpse into the demise of society. Yeah, that's it. It's not our fault for being so fixated on modern technology that we miss everything going on around us. It's the camera guy's fault for showing us just how bad it's gotten. Now...
