Sprint gets big plug on ‘Heroes’

Matt Parkman needs Sprint to phone home.
Would it really work?
Last night’s two-hour “Heroes” season three premiere featured a blatant shout out for Sprint, a prime sponsor of the show.
Spoiler alert: Near the end of the second episode — “The Second Coming” — ex-detective Matt Parkman (Greg Grunberg) wakes up in a desert after future Peter Petrelli (Milo Ventimiglia) unceremoniously dumps him there because Parkman knows too much about the attempted assassination of Nathan Petrelli (Adrian Pasdar).
