Is there a position for a person who contributes no substantive content or analysis but provides plenty of criticism, snark, and pedantic corrections of inconsequential spelling and grammatical errors? Because I would be great at that position.

Just another garbage commenter spreading my *sshole all over the internet.

If I retire, you can have the position.

Why can't we award awesome points to staff?

Because they’re already so awesome, that awarding them points would be a waste of awesome points.

What sort of time commitment are we talking about here?  Would this be full time work?  Sporadic, free-lance type stuff?

Here, have some of these smelling salts.

As much as you want, whether it's Ross II or a post every now and then. If you've got the time and quality, we'll consider it.

JD? Check.
Interest in Hawkeye sports? Check.
Offensive Line? Check. That was my position in school.
Civil litigation? Check.
Fortnite? Nope. Only play pubg, so I guess I am out.

You do at least spell Fortnite correctly, so you've got that going for you.

With Barta still around, maybe a civil litigation specialist on the team would be handy. Like our own Mike Pereira, but instead of debating fumbles, he'd debate what constitutes sexual harassment or ethical misconduct

It seriously ran through my mind....(in voice of Mike Pereira) You know, the security video is a little grainy, but I can see how you could think an ass grab happened, but it's not conclusive. The call on the field was no ass-grab, I just don't think they'll overturn this. Gary Dolphin will probably keep his job here....

I was going to apply for the design position, but you totally fooled me with that fake Flooglehorn app, so I'm probably a bit unqualified.

CAUTION: May go on prolonged rants about Gary Barta and Bruce Harreld without warning.

Planning on applying tonight if there is still time to join up.  I've been wanting to for a long time!  I was a longtime lurker at the Pants but didn't get involved with commenting until GIA was born.

I would enjoy this but I have virtually nothing to contribute.  Other than I can play an actual flugelhorn.  Technically, I can play the Bb trumpet, but the flugelhorn is tuned to Bb and uses the same valve settings as a standard concert Bb trumpet.  I guess I have the "SPAM" thing I came up with which is silly but fun but I don't even do that consistently.  Also, do you really need MORE lawyers here?

Hi fellow trumpeter!

Or, the traditional trumpet greeting: hi, I'm better than you.

I've always wanted a flugelhorn.  Could never justify buying one, though, unless I had a regular gig to play it.
