Note that you're not trying to reach google, either.

OpenDNS is returning you addresses for their own proxies. I believe they do this as part of some of their content-control services to allow you to limit the kind of search queries you (or your users, depending on who decided to use OpenDNS) are able to do.

So while the user problem may be "can't reach google" perhaps the engineering problem is "can't get response from OpenDNS proxy".
