Could This Be You?

sports writer hat.JPGDo you love writing and sports and writing about sports? Tailgate is always looking for new recruits.

Ideally, they'll be brilliant minds who love the Cubs and Bears and Bulls and Blackhawks and White Sox, but can also help us keep Chicago entertained and informed about what's going on below the professional ranks.

If you can analyze a free-agent signing, profile youth football players and/or report on our new bike laws, come and knock on our door. We'll be waiting for you.
