Mile High Casting Call


Do you like the Colorado Avalanche? Do you have internet access? Do you like the movie Airplane? If you answered yes to a couple of those questions, we might have a job for you.

Simply put, we're looking to add a couple of writers. I think Joe's real-world gig is fairly common knowledge around here, and I have a newish job that has me a lot busier during the day too. Mike and Angelique are still pitching in as well, but Mile High Hockey has grown so big that it's hard for us to *ahem* keep up with the Joneses. So, the talent search is on.

Interested? There's only a few basic requirements. You need to be an Avalanche fan, of course, preferably one who can write well. Being able to commit to writing at least a couple of several times a week is a necessity. Beyond that, we're pretty much wide open. You don't need to be an established blogger. In fact, we're not particularly looking for the best writers, but the ones who we think will mesh the best with the existing staff (we're not going anywhere, for what it's worth). Oh, and by "writing", I mean providing content - if you're a photoshop guru or have some other skill that could be incorporated into a regular feature here, don't be afraid to apply.

What's in it for you? Honestly, if you have to ask that question, then this gig is probably not right for you. You're not going to get rich or famous doing this (or maybe I'm just doing it wrong). On the flip side, the hazing period isn't so bad and the dress code is totally lax.

If you are still interested, shoot me an email (listed in my profile) with a little blurb introducing yourself and telling me why you want this crazy gig. We haven't done anything like this here before and we're pretty much making this process up as we go along, so there's absolutely no timetable for any decisions on our part. But definitely get those emails in to me soon; I've got a bunch of movies about gladiators to watch.
