I LOVE the last question:

"If hired, can you verify that you are of legal age to drink alcohol in New York (age 21 or over?)"


Why yes, are you suggesting that alcohol consumption will be part of the job requirements? :-)

If Billy Martin was managing the team you were covering, HECK YEAH! And that's word to Art Fowler.

I am just shaking my head over this, seriously that's all I can do. How can this not be anything more than MLB propaganda from a gilded cage?

Even if you watched multiple games simultaneously, this would be an absolutely brutal schedule to keep to. Not my dream.

[4] Seems that MLB has thought at least part of the way there . . .

Still - what about days where the earliest game starts at 1 PM eastern, and the last game on the west coast doesn't end until 1 AM eastern? That's every Sunday, a lot of Saturdays, most Thursdays, many Mondays . . .

4) Welcome to your nightmare? LOL

[6] If they want to pay me to watch every minute of just every Yankees game - now we're a lot closer to dreamland!

I'd follow one team's every game, if they asked. I'd prefer to shoot images than write, but what the hey.

What if it's a blowout game or Mets vs. Pittsburgh (or either vs anybody for that matter?) I think they're really trying to document the process of mutating a normal human being into Mr. Met...

Endemol, after all, is the outfit that brought us Big Brother, Fear Factor and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition...

[1] I have to wonder when the lucky winner would have time to drink. Even watching games 2 at a time is a recipe for killer fatigue. Now, if they were going to pay me to go to every game that one team (preferably the Yankees) played, on the other hand, I'd sign up for that in a heartbeat. I'd love to see the country and it'd get me closer to my goal of seeing a game in every ballpark.
