The Ultimate Sports Social Media Job Contest

Xfinityadd_medium Running this site pays me enough to take my family out for dinner once a month.. At Perkins... When kids eat free.

I don't mind though. Like the rest of you I bleed blue and white so this is more just a way to connect with other UB Fans than a way to pad my checking account. God has been great to me and I am well employed in another field.

But for those of you who might like to cover sports for a living, well at least for a year? Well XFINITY is running a contest you might just be interested in.

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 Bull Run partner XFINITY for bringing this opportunity to our readers.

How cool would it be if XFINITY chose a UB fan, or the fan of any mid major college, to be the next sport social media star!
