I just caught this little ditty on mgoblue.com. Apparantly the U has an opening for Stadium workers this season and is meeting with applicants on June 2. You can read the whole story here, but in sum:
The University of Michigan Athletic Department will be holding an informational meeting for anyone interested in joining the Michigan Stadium Game Operations Team at home football games. Positions open include ushers, ticket-takers, and bag-check attendants. If interested, please show up at the Junge Family Champions Center on Saturday, June 2, at 10 a.m.
I suppose it would be ok to be an usher but I imagine just like seat requests, the prime usher positions are in between the end zones. I’d be interested to see how many positions open up. As far as ticket taking….I’m not sure I’d want to be the guy taking tickets from the pickled masses pouring in from campus or from the golf course. Bag-check attendants? I’m not sure if that means you’re the narc stopping people from smuggling in contraband, or you are literally checking bags somewhere in the stadium but either way it is a big no-go for me.
While we’re on mgoblue.com, does anyone understand why they leave up all the old content and notices for months? Just looking at the site now, you’ve got the following items on the main football page:
– The recap of the Rose Bowl (take it down!)
– 2006 Game Day information
– Pre-game info for the 2006 Ohio State game
– The 2006 Radio and TV Schedule
