I absolutely love the work that is done on the this website. This is where I found out about this particular position being open. I have been reading the many stories & other great content on this site for close to two years. Wish I knew about it before that. I submitted my material to the University and was fortunately called in w/four other people to audition. We then were paired down to myself & another individual who already handled other events on campus. Both of us were allowed to call an exhibition game each with him doing the first one. Unfortunately, I ended up being the bridesmaid for this job I coveted but know what I need to do going forward. This is where I found out about it and need to acknowledge that fact. This site & your work for those of us in this profession is an absolute priceless treasure. Thank you for all you do.
