Vote for the Next Sports Social Media Star!

Remember this thing? The job I said that I wanted but couldn't win? It's back, and now it's time to vote for people that had better foresight than myself and found themselves in a position to actually win.

Have you ever watched one of those TV shows where from thousands of hopefuls, one star is born?
Well, Bolts from the Blue readers, here's your chance to play "starmaker" and help pick the new voice
of sports in social media!

XFINITY is looking for the next renowned sports social media star through its Ultimate Sports Social
Media Job contest. The winning candidate will serve as the new voice of XFINITY in the sports social
media space and go behind-the-scenes at some of the biggest sporting events in 2012, sharing exclusive
insights and updates with fans.

From February 9-19, you can review qualified entry videos and vote for the contestant you'd like to see
advance to the finals of the XFINITY Ultimate Sports Social Media Job contest. The five entrants with
the most votes will advance to the final round of the contest where they will cover one of five premier
sporting events the weekend of March 8-11. Fans can head today to and click on
the Ultimate Sports Social Media Job contest tab to vote for your favorite personality (once per day)!

Will you choose the brainiac with the encyclopedia of stats, the former jock who knows the game
inside out, or the corporate type who gets the marketing side of the business? You decide. Vote today

Hoo boy, some of those candidates are downright terrible. My favorite might be Ron Kemp, who is either standing on the sun or really doesn't understand lighting. If you applied for this and can be voted for, let us know and become BFTB's official candidate!
