Crashing the Pearly Gates is a labor of love for those of us on the masthead. Following the Angels is clearly a labor of love for those of you who join us day after day to comment about links, games, interviews, and whatever else we happen to discuss. Maybe it is time for you to join us.
Over the last year several former staff members have seen life changes that required them to step away from writing for the site and we could use some help. And I’m sure some of you would like to take a larger role here on the site.
What we are looking for is a couple of people to help with post games, daily links and the occasional breaking news story. Nothing major, just the day to day things that make Crashing the Pearly Gates such a great destination for Angels fans.
If you are capable of doing the type of in depth analysis Brent and Rahul provided, great. We’d love to have you. Do you keep an eye on the farm system and want to write about it? Jump aboard. Have some human interest stories or want to join me in tracking down interviews? Let’s go.
The commitment can be as little as writing a couple of post game threads a week or as much as you’d like. It is up to you.
What’s in it for you? This is really a labor of love with a few perks. Last year the Angels hosted a few of us in a suite for a game and that likely happens again this year. I’ve managed to meet quite a few Angels and farmhands which really makes Spring Training fun. I’ve also taken fellow staff members into the broadcast booth with Vic Rojas when he was there. I can introduce you to Gubi nowadays.
You can say what you want to say with a bit larger of a microphone. And you know your off season pieces will get front page billing. Plus you get to put the content you want to see in front of the fans you enjoy.
At the end of the year, there might even be a little cash for you. Not a ton, but enough to enjoy a decent meal out or pick up some tickets to a game or two.
If you are interested, please let us know below and we will email you.
