Finally, A Chance To Tweet About Sports For A Living

Hey guys, got a new cross promotion we're doing with the mothership that actually could turn out pretty cool. Would love to see a BSD reader win this thing.

Find out how you could win basically my dream job (writing silly hashtags and typing in all caps about sports) after the jump...

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

Thanks to Blogger So Dear partner XFINITY for bringing this opportunity to our readers. Just FYI, we'll have a reminder about the contest in the next week or so, too.
