Major League Baseball is looking to hire a real-time correspondent /social media intern for every team this season. By my count, that’s 29 Major League team plus the Astros.

Dennis Lawson – St. Louis
Stop your search. This job was obviously designed for an experienced blogger (300+ posts about the Cardinals) with supernatural IT geekery skills who happens to be an amateur rocket surgeon. I’m so good with social media that I can practically tweet while sitting on my iPhone in my own basement. I have more social media accounts than I can remember, and I’m quite comfortable using the internet that Al Gore invented.
I claim ownership of both the #douchecanoe and the #WheelsOnTheBusGoUpsideDown hashtags, and my favorite Kardashian is Lamar. I’m fluent in both sabermetrics and the Midwestern dialect of English. I even invented a SABR category named “POOP”, although the organization has yet to officially recognize it.
I’m currently writing 2 books, and the working titles are “The College Years” (a bio on LeBron James) and “Love and Marriage The Kris Humphries Way”. I expect to finish both projects about the same time I wear my skinny jeans out in public.
The Cardinals official Twitter account follows me. This likely indicates that I’m doing something right, or I’m on some top secret watch list (or both). I’ve followed the team since I was old enough to hold a fishing pole steady. My statistical analysis of the Cardinals 2011 playoff chances have been published by the NY Times online, and that tiny media outlet ESPN has given me some linkage love. Yes, “ESPN” is still Spanish for “sports”.
Whether you give me this job or not, it’s worth knowing that all your social media interns are belong to us. It’s not elitism or the inner braggart coming out to play, either. It’s just that I cross-referenced the Mayan calendar with Nostradamus’ work and some m-Universe quantum physics theory, and I determined that I really am the funniest guy you’ll find in 2012. If the credentials aren’t enough, then just know that I own a ManFridge and am willing to bribe everyone with full access to it.
Some people would be satisfied with just submitting their “hire me please” (or is it “hire me pleas) and leaving it alone. Not me. I’m providing screenshots and an image that may or may not have been Photoshopped by me.
This would normally be a humble sort of bragging, but I’m going after a job here.
You see me fridgin’, you be hatin’…..
