The World's First Cell Phone Call

As noted in item No. 2 here, the world's first wireless phone call was made 25 years ago this week at Soldier Field. What was the call about? Beachwood Labs has produced some options.


1. This place is huge! It would be perfect for Olympics opening and closing ceremonies one day, if they don't tear it down!

2. The Cubs will win a World Series before this thing gets small enough to put in your pocket.

3. I told you never to call me at work, honey!

4. Hi, baby. What are you wearing?

5. Look, nobody's gonna ever plunk down ten grand just for the privilege of buying season tickets in this place.

6. So you're telling me that if I roam down to the end zone I have to pay additional fees?

7. Wait, that's a telemarketer on the other line . . .

8. Can you hear me now? But I'm standing right next to you!

9. Hold on a second, I'm going to walk through the players' tunnel . . .

10. I promise, mom, I won't use this while I'm driving . . .


- Julia Gray, Brian Rhodes, Steve Rhodes


Suggestions welcome.


11. Marty Gangler: "No, mom, I don't need money."

12. Brian Rhodes: "My friends, I will be in support of the surge in 25 years."
