Do You Want to Be The New Voice of Dallas Mavericks Home Games? Good. Then I'll Do It.

If you need me between the hours of 4 and 6 p.m. on Tuesday, I'll be at the American Airlines Center auditioning to be The New Voice of Your Dallas Mavericks. So. Not. Kidding. But, let's see ... what do I need to do? Oh, here it is: "Registered applicants must bring a resume, biography and a non-returnable headshot to auditions." Consider it done. So what are they looking for? "Applicants should be charismatic and have a strong, articulate voice suitable for a public setting." Ding and ding. Call 214-747-MAVS for available audition times. I'd tell you how to audition if you can't make it, but, well, you snooze, you don't win.

Oh, why the need for a new announcer? According to Matt Miller at the Mavs, "Humble" Billy Hayes is "moving from the Dallas-Fort Worth area, which is necessitating the change."
