    I think there have been several different openings, both at NBCSports.com and NBCOlympics.com.

    If there's anyone with firsthand experience at one of those sites, feel free to share -- or PM me, because I'm particularly interested in any gig that might send me to the Olympics.

    Stamford hasn't been the same since they closed the Dunder-Mifflin branch.

    (On topic: I think I may have applied for this job when it was open last, yeah, I'm pretty sure I did)
