Hmm let’s go over those qualifications again in relation to S-Bag……
- -Applicants must be able to recognize, develop and comment openly on the major sports topic or topics of the day. (Umm…..Me Tube)
- -Keep the program moving and to create a sense of urgency and anticipation to everything they do on the air. (I think about 70 minutes of Dice K talk, and including the joke “Dice K is Nice K, just about killed that)
- -Must have extensive sports knowledge and a keen interest in current events. (I guess it doesn’t matter where you get it from.)
- -Must be open to coaching on broadcast techniques and subjective feedback on his/her on-air performance. (Why do I have a feeling that this has never happened?)
Okay…..I told you I wasn’t going to give him anymore press, but I couldn’t help myself with that post. I PROMISE that’s my last one (unless he shuts me down).
P.S.- I’m pretty sure formatics is not a word.
Yes, the date listed was before the “Incident”, but as a great leader once said….”We Must Accept Finite Disappointment, But We Must Never Lose Infinite Hope”- Martin Luther King
P.P.S- Forgot to link the source….Yes, it is a real job posting found at Work In Sports. (Password Required) WIS actually found me my first job out of school so I owe them for sending me to Philly to work in Women’s Soccer…..for free.
