Thunder Matt's Saloon Summer Intern Program: Taking Applications now

May 22, 2009 | Comments (0) | by Jake the Terrible Cubs Fan

The other day Chaim mentioned in his post that anyone interested in writing for Thunder Matt's Saloon should drop us an email inquiring about it.

Today I'd like to officially announce we are in fact taking applications for the TMS Summer Intern Program.

We're looking for 1 or 2 motivated bloggers that would like to come aboard and begin writing for an "established" Cubs blog.
  • Have you ever wanted to write for a blog but haven't found the time or know-how to get up and running?
  • Have you in the past, or currently wrote your own personal blog but have become discouraged by the lack of traffic/notice your work is receiving, or have you burned out trying to single-handedly keep fresh content up?
If either of those have ever happened to you than this is the perfect opportunity.

Excited? Well you f'n should be! Let's go over some of the rules and criteria for the Intern program.
  • This is not a paid internship, in fact we'll probably try to bum money off of you.
  • You cannot receive college credit for this, although Tommy Buzanis still has his part-time gig teaching 'home gun repair' at night school, but that's neither here nor there.
  • Must be 21 years of age to be considered.
  • Must have a good sense of humor and not be easily offended or insulted.
  • Must be a fan of the Chicago Cubs.
  • Must have a solid base of pop culture knowledge in some capacity (i.e. music, movies, books, televison, comic books, s&m pornography, etc.).
  • Must be committed to writing at least 1 blog post a week minimum.
  • Internship will go from June until the end of the Cubs season.
  • Once internship is complete the possibility for a full-time gig at TMS will be determined.
  • Must have a Gmail account.
  • Must possess competent writing skills.
  • Must be able to drink Pabst Blue Ribbon without complaint or remorse for your liver and colon.
  • Accepted interns will receive an official Thunder Matt's Saloon Intern t-shirt*.
Still in? Then drop us a line at thundermatts[at] and specify your interest. We'll take applications until June 1st. Then we'll pool the applicants together and take them through a series of challenges. Open-hand slapfighting with Chaim, beer drinking with Dave Thomas, chest bumping with The Hundley, fellating Iron Maiden with Wolter, and other various feats of strength may be part of the agenda.

*shirt may be substituted with a glass of scotch or some other various item of our choosing.
