This one goes to 11

There was a super headline on espn.com yesterday following George Mason’s upset of UConn. It said, “This One Goes to 11.” Why is that so great? Because it is a reference to the Christopher Guest movie, “This is Spinal Tap,” in which the lead guitarist for the band has an amplifier whose volume knob goes to 11. When asked by someone why they don’t just make “10” louder, he replies in a no-duh voice, “Because it’s eleven. This one goes to eleven.” Nice work, ESPN.

You didn't have to explain it to us Marshall. We know the reference. And if we didn't, we wouldn't know why you think it's so funny.

Know what. I reread my comment. It sounds mean. I didn't mean for it to sound mean. Whoops.
