Times are tough. Jobs are scarce, money's tight and our sports teams haven't lifted a championship trophy since 1999.
We temporarily interrupt this recession depression for some good news, wrapped in an employment opportunity.
The NBA's new Frisco Developmental League (D-League) franchise is holding a job fair this afternoon Noon-2 p.m. at Dr. Pepper StarCenter in Frisco. Dallas Mavericks' general manager Donnie Nelson will be on hand shaking hands and accepting resumes for positions with the franchise ranging from coaching to management to game-day operations to sales executives.
Applicants not able to attend may email resumes to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Says Donnie, "This team will represent Texas not only in name, but with our most important asset ... Texans themselves. We want this to be a team built by and for the people of this community. This next year will be beginning of a brand new sports franchise and we want everyone to be involved."
You have two hours to get crackin'.
