It's caused it was all moved from ATL to DEN, so probably pretty hard to coordinate.
Shouldn't be difficult to get enough kids from UC and CU to volunteer.

This reminds me of how everybody was falling all over themselves back in 1984 when the Los Angeles Olympics was profitable.  Turned out it was most likely profitable due only to the work of 50,000 volunteers who, if they would have been paid even minimum wage, would have put the Olympics in the red. Same deal for many marathons, like the Rock & Roll Marathons, that use thousands of volunteers to work for free for a for-profit company.

I went ahead and put my name in. May be fun. Thanks Subby!

So, literally every major sporting event of this type since as long as anyone can figure.

Thanks for the edgy update, fark.

I have seen a lot of people say that after they moved it from Atlanta. MLB was dying before that would accelerate it.

Just like what the NFL does for the owl?

What in the actual fark.

There better be a ton of perks for that like free food and alcohol for having to deal with those kind of travelers.

Yeah subby, how dare they let the general public have a chance to be part of something they might find fun and enjoyable after a year of being out of luck with all large scale events


Things like this should obviously be kept to the elite few who are rich and have connections.

Is that a typo or is there another "C" university out there that doesn't do the Midwestern "reverse the anagram" thing most of them do?

Of course! You get to supply your own business casual dress, pay for gas and parking at the airport, and probably buy lunch there as well.

I think that might actually be paid, just outside of regular work duties.  Maybe not, and if not, fark Delta.
