I'm in the market for a new job, and this seemed like my cup of tea, so I'm going to fill out an application this week.
My buddy Stan and I mused for a moment what that application may have hidden.
Actual application questions:
First of all, read number four again. Related Questions not on the website:
1. Yes/No: Do you have a Bachelor's degree in journalism, communications or related field? (Related: English? IF so, than YES.)
2. Yes/No: Do you have at least 1 year experience as a sports writer or member of the sports copy desk? (Does a post on this blog once every three months count?)
3. Yes/No: Do you have at least 1 year PR or marketing experience with a professional sports team? (No.)
4. Yes/No: Do you know NBA knowledge? (Not personally, no, but I'M WILLING TO LEARN.)
5. Yes/No: Are you available to work any day or night that the Knicks play? (Definitely.)
6. Start/Stop: Snitchin'?* (For real, though)
7. Please circle the following things you are willing to do:
8. Are you willing to print what we tell you and not what actually happened (see no. 6)? (Uh, sure.)
9. Have you ever met Jamal Crawford? If not, are you willing to deal with menopausal mood swings? (My mom went through that once, I think. She didn't score many points on bad days.
10. Do you support Cablevision? (What is that?)
11. Are you willing to stop blogging (see no. 6)? (I guess so, yeah.)
12. Are you seriously willing to liveblog a truck party? (YES PLS.)
13. Are you willing to take it from Starbury in a tight area? Like the back of a Volkswagen? Or an alley? (Ummmmmmmmmmmmmm...)
I've got this, guys. It's in the bag.
*Question six and the liveblogging of a truck party were Stan's contributions.
