Yeah, anyone could just show up and talk on TV. Diane, you're reasonably smart but we have absolutely no idea if you could actually talk (TALK) about racing for 5 hours a day.

Do you remember the Seinfeld episode when George said he could be an announcer because he made good comments during games? And Jerry said, well, those jobs usually go to people who played the sport, or are trained in broadcasting? Paul Benny seems dead on the inside, but his trolling telling you all to apply was pretty funny for a bot. Dear lord, you have to actually learn how to talk on TV. Random people don't just show up and do play-by-play.

And the people who were like, "oh man, $90,000 a year is so much!" so you're one of a dozen people in the country with the job, and $90,000 is too much. I swear, this place, it's shut-in central.

Touch grass everyone!
Dilan is a lawyer, of course he can talk for 5 hours a day.

I mean I do oral arguments and have done trials, and those things require both a lot of preparation and a lot of extemporaneous speech. And my father did lots of television (mostly football games and track meets). So yeah, I know what is involved and that part would not be difficult for me.

But I wouldn't be able to say a lot of intelligent things about who is going to win the race or how viewers should bet it.

I can honestly say in terms of ability to speak and communicate at a rapid pace few can outpace me. There are people in the business who will go unnamed who would clearly substantiate that. I frequently call talk shows unprepared and can articulate things quite clearly. Moreover, I do know how to dress well, and present myself well. I am not a robot as Dave S. pointed out. In fact, I was frequently told I had the gift of gab by an Irish-descent Franciscan professor in my Contemporary Catholic Thought class. Lastly, I also have a strong resume in terms of being considered the class clown and a prankster and a robot could not do that. Zia Park has some nice races today.

Casty: I'm glad a professor in 1867 told you you were witty.

Paul Benny: In fact, I graduated from college in 1975. A college is a building with walls where people go to get an education and learn things, and occasionally "pitch woo" to the ladies. My Irish priest told me I was the third-best woo pitcher in the graduating class of 1975 and had quite the sense of humor, in addition to being a sharp dresser. Dave Schwartz was there too but he failed the Catholic thought class, unlike me who pulled a solid D. Parx has some big fields today.

I was digging up an old school document I needed to reference for one of my college classes, but I came across a file folder named "School work," so I looked in it, and it has a lot of my public/high school files which one I saw that said "my Profession as an adult."

I'll let the photo do the talking:

Is this enough to send to TVG to apply for the job? I was 12 at the time and was thinking about working there. Hey, there is a chance

We don't make a party out of loving.
Cause we like holding hands and pitching woo....

Football's still the roughest thing on campus.
And the kids here still respect the college dean.

Well she only left TVG she didn't leave NBC, so one can assume she is getting a bigger role over there.
As for Rich, he retired.
