Spurs Report Member Finalist for the "World's Best Job"

Hey guys,

Sorry to be guilty of some shameless promotion but I'm sure some of you heard about this "world's best job" that is being offered in Queensland, Australia.

Basically what you get to do is live on a beautiful island for 6 months, get paid $100,000 while blogging about your experiences on the island and its surrounding areas.

The job got more than 34,000 applicants but I happened to make it to the final 50 people where internet voting has now begun.

You can vote once each day but if you have multiple email addresses, you can vote multiple times. The voting ends on March 24th at 11:59PM GMT, so we got about 3 weeks to keep the vote going.

Some of you may know me from the Spurs Forum... before we had that long site downtime, I posted a detailed interview with Bruce Bowen when he visited South Korea 2 years ago where i work in the media.

Anyways, thought i would just reach out and ask for some support from my fellow Spurs' fans. Go to the site and cast a vote for me. I would greatly appreciate it (but if you vote for the hot Russian in the bikini, i guess i can't really blame you.)

The Best Job In The World

Thanks guys and GO SPURS GO. Hurry back MANU!!!

P.S. if some of you admins think this would be appropriate to be posted in the basketball forum, then i'm all for the move to get more exposure. I didn't want to post it there in the first place and mess with the Feng Shui of SR.

I'll wear as much Spurs stuff as I can in Australia and maybe even don an old Andrew Gaze Spurs' Jersey from the 99 Season.

anyone know where I can find one?

(now, it's kinda basketball related...)

Good Luck you have my support. Just as long as you fit a bit about the Spurs in your blogs.

Thanks for all the support guys. Really appreciate it and I try to mention the Spurs everyday in the Sports segment of my show. gotta convert the masses! I actually wrote about the Spurs and Manu several times in the monthly teaching booklet that goes along with my other show, so the Spurs are well known and the young students' minds are starting to get brainwashed Black and Silver, just the way we like it!

Since I voted for you I want you to do me a favor. When you are blogging you have to say, "I Love Black People!" at least once a week. (Any similarities to the movie Jerry McGuirre are purely coincidental).

That's so cool that you are one of 50 in the running. You need to get UT grads and students behind you. Do they have a website? Good Luck

yeah, i just contacted the Daily Texan, the Texas Exes and Judson Senior High. I've been swamped with running Page Ranking here in Korea. We, of the Asian Pursuasion here on the Korean peninsula can get pretty crazy too once they catch on and move past the "holy the voting page is in English" phase. I'm going to wait a bit on the SA Express-News because I don't want to exhaust all my channels at once and we still do have about 19 days to go till the voting is over.

I appreciate all the support I'm getting from the members here.

remember to go vote each day per email address.

The Best Job In The World

and if i win, i gonna have spurs jerseys of the following players so i can wear one each day.

David Robinson
Manu Ginobili
Tim Duncan
George Gervin
Tony Parker
Sean Elliott
Andrew Gaze - for the aussies!!

***Anyone can vote again within 24 hours between each vote.

150k for 6 month is a Great Contract. I truly Hope you will get it.

Good Luck to you

Represent SR and our beloved Spurs

Fellow Spursreporters,

There's a couple of days left in the voting process and I appreciate the support you guys have given me. Even though the voting ends, the whole process doesn't end till April 2nd, which is when the next 11 is announced, and i hope it doesnt end for me on that date. I made a video specially designed for the Spanish speakers... I was wondering if some of you guys, especially spanish speakers, could help "spread the word" about the video to other Spanish communities on the internet.

You can check out the video at my blog for the best job in the world...
…to the Great Barrier Reef with me?

ALSO, i'm embedding it here.


Thanks guys!
