You Can't Hear Me Baby!!!!!!!!

Thursday, December 07, 2006

An amazing story out of Duke University. A student has figured out a way to mute Dickie V (and any ESPN talking head for that matter) by the push of a button.

If you are sick and tired of listening to Vitale, and you are fortunate enough to have access to an audio receiver + surround sound speakers, here is an easy and 100% effective way to eliminate Vitale and Patrick from your viewing experience. If the game is being broadcast in Dolby Digital 5.1 (not sure if that means the game has to be in high def or not, the audiophiles on the board can correct me), the audio is divided up such that the rear channels are *only* the ambient crowd and stadium noises.

On a whim during the Indiana game, I muted the front-left, front-center, front-right, and subwoofer - leaving only my rear channels. To my delight, the only sound remaining was that of Cameron: sneakers squeaking on the hard wood, the crowd shouting, and the occasional PA announcement. You don't hear a peep out of ESPN! If you already have a surround sound setup, you should test this out (unless you enjoy hearing Vital sing 'Hear Comes Santa Claus').
It's a lot of technical jargon that AA doesn't always understand, but we're sure some of you all can figure it out. Enjoy!

Thank you so much, I can't stand Dick Vitale! As a matter of fact, there's hardly an announcer any more that I CAN stand. Bill Walton is the worst....

I find it pretty hilarious that this was a Duke fan that figured this out. That means that EVEN Duke fans are embarrassed at the way ESPN slobbers all over the Dukies.

As for the first comment... well, Bill Walton rocks. If you don't take him seriously and take all of his ridiculous exaggerations for what they're meant to be... jokes... I actually find Bill to be quite hilarious.

So, AA, I tried this watching the game last night. And YEAH BABY, no Vitale to be heard. I would kiss this Duke grad, except I'd be afraid he'd try to profess his manlove for Coach K, and I'd have to kill him...
