The Ultimate Sports Social Media Job Contest

Over the last few weeks, you guys have had plenty of opportunities to express your feelings on the Red Sox' offseason in our comment sections. Many of you even did so in as few as four letters! Succinct!

So, being the knowledgeable folks that you are, how many of you would like to be able to voice your discontent opinions to a wider audience? How would you like to get paid for it? Well, we've got an opportunity for you:

Have you ever wanted a shot at winning your dream job in sports social media? Here’s your chance – XFINITY is launching a nationwide contest to find the next sports social media star to serve as the voice of XFINITY behind-the-scenes at the biggest sporting events nationwide in 2012.

The contest is called "Xfinity Presents: The Ultimate Sports Social Media Job" and runs from January 13th through March 25th. The winner will receive a one-year salary, all the electronics for the ultimate sports pad, and will have the opportunity to share thoughts, insights, and content with fans nationwide via the @XFINITYSports Twitter handle on a daily basis. This is truly a dream job opportunity for anyone looking to make a name for themselves in the world of sports and social media.

Here’s how it works:

From January 13 – February 6, you can log on to and submit a :30-2:00 video on the Ultimate Sports Social Media Job contest tab that shows why your sports knowledge, social media expertise, personality, and passion for Comcast products and services makes you the perfect candidate for the job.

The top video submissions will be featured on the Ultimate Sports Social Media Job contest tab located on for fans to vote on from February 9-19. The five entrants who tally the most votes will advance to the final round of the contest where they will cover one of five premier sports events the weekend of March 8-11. Following that weekend, a panel of judges will evaluate each performance and announce the winner of the contest by March 25th!

Head today to and click on the Ultimate Sports Social Media Job contest tab for all the details, as well as contest rules. Enter soon, as February 6th is the deadline for video submissions! Thanks to Over The Monster's partner XFINITY for bringing this opportunity to our readers.

Just to help you guys out, I'm guessing profanity will not help your chances.

Or who knows, maybe it's a ticket to stardom? Good luck!
