    WestSideLax.com is seeking interns in several cities to help cover lacrosse this spring. Successful candidates will become beat reporters in designated metropolitan areas.

    These are unpaid positions. Candidates will benefit by gaining significant experience covering games on a tight deadline and by working directly with a seasoned journalist. We are looking for people who are eager to learn how to cover sports like a professional.

    Depending on the area, interns may be asked to cover games up to six days a week. We will work with all candidates to get them college credit. West Side Lax went online in December 2005 and has since received more than two million page views. During the 2006 season, 125,000 unique visitors came to WSL in a three-month period.

    We are seeking interns to work in the following areas: San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Boise, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Phoenix, Denver, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Dallas, Austin and Houston.

    If interested, please e-mail your name and phone number to information@westsidelax.com, and someone will get in touch for an interview.

    The words "unpaid" and "Las Vegas" should never appear together in a job posting.

    Not only that, but you could work for free SIX days a week in some areas.

    Even JRC gives you two days off per week.

    What kind of seasoning do they use on their journalists? I'm partial to dill or basil.

    I can appreciate someone seeking free and eager labor, but six days a week? You're on crack.
