Yo! AT&T Cribs!

PujolsdeidreI finally gave in to the relentless barrage of AT&T commercials during the games imploring me to visit seehowtheylive.com and get a tour of Albert Pujols’ crib.  The house tour only covered the backyard, kitchen, and game room of Albert’s Kansas City abode.  The tour script involved a lot of plugs for AT&T products – Deion points out the Dish TV with DVR, Albert uses the phone to call for a pizza, and Albert talks about using his treo to stay in touch with his family when he’s on the road.  It’s an interactive video where you can click on hotspots and learn additional fun facts about the annoying Deion (please don’t let him get a talk show) and Albert and his family.  I was impressed that Albert’s class shows through even in this extended commercial.  The crib was very nice but not ostentatious, and there was no parade of bling.  Albert mostly wanted to talk about his family, faith and his foundation.   it’s worth a look, if only for the concluding footage of Albert smashing line drives into a cardboard Deion (for each direct hit, Deion donated $100 to Albert’s foundation).

Crib? You mean ‘house’, don’t you? Or are we just of bunch of negroes now, after 15+ years of MTV?

We were using the word “crib” to describe our place of residence way before the existence of MTV’s very popular show. So MTV has nothing to do with turning us into “a bunch of negroes.”
