    It should probably also go without saying that you need to pay this individual you "hire," but here we are.

    This IS a paid position, a full-time job? Or is it freelance/volunteer/something else?

    1. Drano -- How does it really taste?

    2. Why is this curve marked at 15 mph? Why slow down for it?

    3. If I let you go, do you think you could fly?

    I've worked with HERO Sports now for 18 months plus. It's been an awesome experience, great crew too. We're in Frisco this weekend for the FCS Title game.

    If you're curious, hit me up on PM or email me at brian.mclaughlin@herosports.com. I'll brag on them some more. I decided to edit this message down after responding to the cynics ... but then realized that's probably just a waste of time.
