Ron Gardenhire hasn't found the silent function on his phone yet

We've all been there at some point -- at a job interview, a family dinner, a date or maybe a religious service.

Everything is going smoothly, until your world is shattered by the piercing sound of your phone's ringtone. It's a common folly, and one that always seems to strike at the worst possible moment.

That moment was Wednesday night for Twins manager Ron Gardenhire, who had an interview disrupted by the blaring trumpets of The Eyes of Texas.

They say tradition never graduates, but Gardenhire -- a proud UT-Austin alum -- may want to silence it next time.
