CEOs

Set your alarms, folks. We're going to get a second dose of keynote awesomeness on Tuesday when the CEOs of Sprint, Verizon and AT&T all take the stage together for the opening keynote at CTIA in San Diego.

Think back to March, at the spring show. Just days before these joined CNBC's Jim Cramer for a pretty frank discussion, AT&T announced its plans to purchase T-Mobile, and the gloves came off. CTIA's dubbed this one "Return of the Titans," and it should be interesting, to say the least, when they're back for Round 2 in San Diego next Tuesday. And, as always, we'll be there. Stay tuned.

Interesting that they are taking the stage together. Isn't Sprint still in on the DOJ's suit against AT&T's acquisition of T-Mobile? Will they open up the floor to questions? If they do, SOMEONE is going to ask about that, and it could get ugly... and entertaining.

Dan Hesse is the only one that doesn't look like he should be in an SNL skit.

Hows that? Look at that goofy smile! He could definitely be in an SNL skit!

bbarend says:

Mainly I am looking at the porn mustaches, but yeah he has the smile and butt hair.

iSlackerz says:

I think Ralph looks more like a used car salesman.

rstuckmaier says:

Or the old Micro Machines guy.

Gekko says:

Hesse looks the most normal. the other two look like washed up 80's porn stars.

swissarmy says:

My bet is on Hesse!

keith2k1 says:

Dan looks like he just got out of bed...SMH

Gekko says:

wow. two with unfortunate facial hair and one with bad plugs. don't these guys realize that mustaches went out in 1983? sheesh.

ScottJ says:

If Hesse has plugs, then he needs to get his money back as his forehead goes way back.

Had trouble making fun of Hesse's appearance since he's lacking the obviously lame mustache? Gotcha. You could have made fun of his crooked toothless grin. Amateur.

Gekko says:

i said that Hesse looks the most normal. Pancho Villa has the hair plugs AND a bad mustache - double offender. i thought that was obvious.

ScottJ says:

You think De La Vega (assumed from the Pancho Villa reference) has plugs? That's even worse than Hesse. Why would a multi-millionaire pay for plugs that start at the very back of the top of his head?

De La Vega's picture looks like a cartoon or something.

Floss82 says:

rizzay1 says:

If they really wanna make everybody happy all 3 of them should carry the Prime!

More "Let's talk iPhone noise".  Calling it.

jdm4u says:

hmmm...on the same day that Samsung is going to unveil something big...all i can picture is the three of them on stage and Samsung coming up saying "Hey, you guys want the Nexus Prime? You got it buddy! You guys got the Prime!!!"

S_C_B says:

This is gonna be good!

mrbizzy72 says:

They're gonna talk about how the Iphone turned their data plans to crap!... LOL

premonition says:

Seeing as how iPhone are now on all major 3 carriers it would be smart for google/samsung to introduce Nexus Prime for all 3 carriers.

AT&T dude is starting to channel "trollface" guy...
