    If only someone around here worked at SI who could fill us in ... :rolleyes:

    This sounds awesome, honestly. But ... it's only an associate producer role? Sounds a lot more in-depth than that. And I would be very interested except for the little part of being based in New York ... not that I'm looking to switch things up. Done enough of that the past six years -- some of my own doing, a lot not of my own doing.
