Join our Team: BSD Wants YOU, Intelligent Sports Fan!

So we've all survived the first year of the NCAA sanctions, and now it's time to look forward to Year Two. And while the staff here at BSD is eager to get going, we're also looking to expand and add some terrific writers to the staff.

So we're coming to you, John and Jane Reader. You know sports, or else you wouldn't be reading any blog. You love Penn State sports, or else you wouldn't be reading this blog. And you love to write and talk about Penn State sports, because researching the legal title to northwestern Pennsylvania property is boring, and you need an escape.

What are we looking for?

Generally, you should be a reliable, hard-working, intelligent person with a passion for sports in general, specifically Penn State or Big Ten topics. BSD does not discriminate in any way (save against Ohio State fans), so persons of all genders, races, creeds, national origins, and religions will be considered.

Specifically, we're looking for one or two people who can cover 1) daily news, including but not limited to breaking news, updating ongoing stories, and being available for quick analysis and also have 2) all over sports knowledge, including football, basketball, and any other PSU sports you care to cover.

In addition to one or two spots being available for the aforementioned, we are specifically looking for two writers to cover niche roles.

First, we need some hockey coverage AMIRIGHT? If you can speak (well, write) intelligently on Penn State hockey, even if it's only to the extent that you can provide regular updates on games, recruiting, conference play, etc., we want you.

Second, we'd like to find a staff member who is interested in covering the smaller Penn State sports. Ideally, this will entail a weekly roundup of all non-FB or BB sports in session, as well as the occasional sport-specific post.

Finally, we require our authors to use the word "Nits" in at least one post per month. This is non-negotiable.

What can you expect from us?

All I can promise at this time is unbelievable notoriety, all the Peruvian hash you could ever dream of, and a Snuggie. We can discuss other perks later. But if you're interested in this position because of the perks, you probably aren't the right person for the job.


Please send me an email at jeffjunstrom AT yahoo DOT com if you're interested in filling any of the roles outlined above. From there, along with my esteemed Managing Editors, we'll hopefully be adding to the staff and making sure that our little slice of the internets is as strong as we can make it for you, humble reader.

Thank you again,

BSD Staff
