I’m in ur Cellphone… Stealin’ ur Reasonable Expectations

 Samuel Johnson wrote, “Every quotation contributes something to the enlargement of the language.” With the launch of his new Gustones, Gus Johnson has expanded language beyond what any of us thought possible. For two bucks, you can replace your boring old “Errbody in the club gettin’ tipsy” cellphone ringtone with Gus Johnson calling a decidedly fictional basketball game over some stock crowd noise. For example:

Gus Johnson… Game time… Charlotte… Down by one… Seven seconds left… Gerald Wallace… top of the key… Got it! Charlotte! World Champs! (without crowd noise and in a decidedly more serious tone) It could happen. Believe.

That’s right, Bobcat fans. It only costs two bucks to have Johnson stroke your fantasy. Maybe an extra five could convince Gus to say something like:

Inlet pass to Okafor…. Backs the man down… Spins… Little hook shot… Nails it!… That Okafor has some unbelievable post moves!
