Get a Wake-Up Call From Nate Robinson

Seattle native and current New York Knick Nate Robinson--memorably profiled in these pages by Rafe Bartholomew--is never short on energy. If anything, he errs on the side of hyperactivity. (See, e.g., here.) Which makes him as good a candidate as any to record wake-up calls for kids who have a hard time dragging themselves out of bed to go to school. So he's recorded nine of them (as part of an Ad Council/U.S. Army campaign), including one in which he impersonates a robot, one in which he entreaties the listener to rise in his "Medieval Times" accent. They're intended for school kids, anyone can send or receive them, so have at it, Nate fans. (The numbers don't go into a database, so you don't need to worry about getting marketing or recruiting calls.) There are worse ways to rise and shine.
