Thanks to a super secret inside source, Frumpzilla has learned that Duke University officials have proudly advertised the release of Coach K’s new iPhone app in the school’s latest employee newsletter. Quite significant considering story lines such as the University recently receiving 10 million in funding for stem cell research got bumped.
Nevertheless, I’m not here to judge. I’m just here to use this opportunity to provide you with some more fantastic screens of Coach K’s magnificent app (pandas and dragons included)! That’s right, Frumpsters, just for you, I actually managed to find my way out of New York, hopped a plane to China and then went for a lovely jog on Duke’s gloriously Gothic campus. It just keeps getting better and better…and by “better” I mean absolutely insane…
When I first heard about Coach K’s new iPhone app — via our own Twitter page no less — I fully expected the shortened url accompanying the tweet to take me to some parody site or article. One perhaps hosted/written by a Heels fan, or actually anyone unaffiliated with Duke University for that matter. It didn’t.
Instead I was directed to Coach K’s official website, and an entry announcing the March 23rd release of Coach K’s first foray into the iPhone’s app store. Wow.
Needless to say, I still thought this was some sort of joke. April Fools’ come early? Had to be. But then I wanted to be certain.
Next step, whip out the trusty iPhone, tap into the app store, and do a quick search for “Coach K.” Lo and behold, there she was.
Simple icon, glossy blue. “Coach K” written in white. Calm, cool, somewhat collected. Somewhat like Coach K.
Was I satisfied? Absolutely not. Did I drop the $2.99 to download the app just to make sure? I did. Will I be writing this expenditure off as a necessary business expense come April 2011? Most likely.
