Does Operation Sports have a resident blogger on all things sports? Are these the only writing positions open?

They are the only things open for sure man. We don't cover sports since we couldn't do nearly as good of a job as the people already covering them.

I appreciate it! If I was more of an XBLA gamer I would submit for that, but the jobs listed aren't my area of expertise in sports gaming or sports! Thank You! (I will keep blogging on here though! )

I found a typo, so can I be the editor? J/K. The deadline should be January 26, 2010. Good luck to everyone that applied.

I just saw this now,I was hoping the site was going to expand into some non-sports game reviews when I saw the title from the main page.
