(Those of you who are sports fans and/or Tennessee Titans fans, I'm *really* asking for your help.)
In the interest of full disclosure, I'm feeling a little bit like Crash Davis from Bull Durham here. After so many years in the "getting paid for my work" leagues, I don't like to try out. (Nor do I believe in quantum physics when it comes to matters of the heart, but that's a discussion for another time.)
However, I'm finding myself in the odd position of trying out for a position...namely as an NFL correspondent for the CBSSports.com-affiliated site BleacherReport.com.
They're looking for writers in each NFL city for the upcoming season, and they're basically holding open auditions right now. Since I've been a rabid observer of NFL football since I can remember, and since there's a team in my virtual backyard, I thought I'd give it a go.
Here's where you come in...I need you to go read my stuff. I've written and posted five pieces already, with a couple more to go per the tryout requirements.
Here are the links to the pieces I've posted:
- "Getting The Center's Attention: 10 Q's For Kevin Mawae"
- "Keith Bulluck: Will He Stay or Will He Go?"
- "Staying Off The Merry-Go-Round: Titans' Coaching Staff"
- "The Line In The Sand: Titans' D-Line Key To Cecil's Success"
- "Laying Down Roots: The 1999 Tennessee Titans"
Mainly, I just need to bring my significant and oh-so-influential friend/fanbase to the party.
Can you take a few minutes and help a ridiculously tall re-emerging sports writer out?
Thanks so much...love ya, mean it...
