    Or being in Barcelona...as long as I don't have food poisoning.
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 1:01:41 AM
    Hey all, the event should be starting up at any moment now.
  • Kent German 6/19/2014 1:01:55 AM
    @RogerCheng: That's happened to the best of us.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 6/19/2014 1:02:20 AM

    Not a cold ccocktail, sadly.

  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 1:02:35 AM
    Okay, the T-Mobile leadership is out. CTO Neville Ray and CMO Mike Sievert are walking to their front-row seats.
  • James Martin 6/19/2014 1:03:07 AM
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 1:03:26 AM
    T-Mobile staff had to shoo away a few reporters who took those chairs. There are plenty of seats!

  • Ezzy Klein 6/19/2014 1:04:44 AM
    Would any of this stuff even matter if Sprint takes them over?
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 1:04:48 AM
    Yes, I pounded down a Red Bull before this event started.
  • Kent German 6/19/2014 1:05:08 AM
    @EzzyKlein: The latest rumor is that the Sprint name will be dropped.
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 1:05:16 AM
    @EzzyKlein: Good point. But my belief is John Legere would take over if they merged.
  • James Martin 6/19/2014 1:05:20 AM
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 1:05:37 AM
    I asked John Legere if he would work for Sprint CEO Dan Hesse. His answer: No.
  • rb 6/19/2014 1:06:06 AM
    @Ketn - makes sense since t-mobile has a better
    brand and more loved than Sprint
  • Mac Graham 6/19/2014 1:06:07 AM
    Does that neon pink hurt your eyes?
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 1:06:23 AM
    @MacGraham: It's more like magenta, but yes, it's starting to wear down on our tired eyes.
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 1:07:21 AM
    The lights have dimmed. Showtime!
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 1:07:31 AM
    Yikes, I can feel the bass....here we go!
  • Jessica Dolcourt 6/19/2014 1:07:54 AM
    The base is turned up HIGH.
  • James Martin 6/19/2014 1:07:55 AM
  • JoeB 6/19/2014 1:08:05 AM
    which color stays for the merger "pink" or "yellow" ?
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 1:08:06 AM
    Cue the hype video detailing Uncarrier 1.0-4.0.
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 1:08:22 AM
    You know the details. No contracts, early upgrades, international data, and ETF buy outs.
  • Kent German 6/19/2014 1:08:27 AM
    @JoeB: Pink and yellow stripes?
  • Jessica Dolcourt 6/19/2014 1:08:33 AM
    It's funny, the earnest videos of happy T-Mo customers clashes a bit with the hard-rocking bass and shrieking crowd of T-Mobile employees.
  • James Martin 6/19/2014 1:08:54 AM
  • James Martin 6/19/2014 1:09:19 AM
  • James Martin 6/19/2014 1:10:11 AM
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 1:10:32 AM
    Hey, it's that Buffer announcer...the lesser known brother.
  • James Martin 6/19/2014 1:10:49 AM
  • Jessica Dolcourt 6/19/2014 1:10:51 AM
    And we're live! From Seattle!
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 1:10:58 AM
    "It's Time!" he yells.
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 1:11:10 AM
    What an introduction for CEO John Legere.
  • James Martin 6/19/2014 1:11:16 AM
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 1:11:22 AM
    He doesn't come through the front, but walks through the crowd in the back.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 6/19/2014 1:11:28 AM
    Well, if you're going to book a concert venue, you treat everyone like rock stars.
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 1:11:32 AM
    The music plays...it's hard not to feel hyped up.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 6/19/2014 1:11:38 AM
    Slapping hands like a boss.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 6/19/2014 1:11:57 AM
    We're sitting *really close*.
  • James Martin 6/19/2014 1:12:01 AM
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 1:12:12 AM
    If they gave you any hologram cameras, you can point them at me and tell you who I am, he says.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 6/19/2014 1:12:15 AM
    The crowd is cheering about our long press day...but I doubt they know why.
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 1:12:36 AM
    There should be a doobie right next to the energy drink in the goodie bag, he jokes.
