    Metro US is looking for a looking for a freelance sports writer to cover Boston Bruins hockey, Boston Red Sox baseball, New England Patriots football, Boston Celtics basketball and New England Revolution soccer as well as local university athletics.

    I know this wouldn't be a beat, but do you need anyone to cover Red Sox at Angels when they come to Anaheim this season?
    Or perhaps the NE Revolution when they play at Home Depot Center in Carson, vs. either LA Galaxy and/or FC Chivas?
    I live right near Angel Stadium and could help you out. 10 years experience, incl. some MLB experience.

    Ah, yes. I can tell you're just the man for FC Chivas coverage.

    Sorry, best of luck to you, but if you're trying to get gigs you probably want to nail at least the name of the teams. I don't think the Revs get out there again this year, anyway.
