Ever Wanted To Shout "YIIIIIIIIIIII JIANLIAN!!!!" In Front Of 20,000 People?

In this day and age, with unemployment sky-high and any job opportunity is a good one. But every once in a while, a great job opportunity comes along. I believe the Wizards' opening for a new Public Address Announcer, as announced tonight via tweet, would fall in the latter category.

Better yet, you have a chance to tryout for the job, even if you're a novice.

The Wizards are looking for a new voice to announce their home games for the upcoming 2010-2011 season. We're looking for a booming and authentic voice to help bring our games to life. Basketball announcing experience is a plus, but not mandatory.

Even if you think you lack a booming, authentic voice, it's a job worth trying out for. How many other places can you go to work with cup holders at the urinals? If that, and the opportunity to say John Wall's name 41 times a year doesn't entice you, nothing will.
