The Rush to Rushmore
Are you a born leader? Do you consider yourself “presidential”? Has anyone ever told you that you have Kennedy hair? Do you have what it takes to literally “run” for the highest office in the land?
If you believe you have it in you to lead our great nation – or at least lead three of y our cohorts from the center field gate to the finish line in front of the Nationals’ dugout – perhaps you are fit to be a Racing President. The Nationals will hold tryouts for the 2012 crew of George, Tom, Abe and Teddy on (fittingly) Presidents Day Weekend. If you would like to join in the fun of the award-winning entertainment team, make sure you meet the following qualifications:
- Stand between 5’7” and 6’6”
- Have the ability to run from center field to home plate (approx. 200 yards) in 40 seconds or less
- Have the ability to wear a costume weighing up to 45 pounds for several hours
- Be available for at least 35 Nationals home games
If you meet the criteria and would like to apply, send a photo, resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. Tryouts will be by invitation only, and will be held on Saturday, February 18 at Nationals Park.
You may never have your likeness carved into the side of a mountain, but you could have the opportunity to gloriously cross the finish line first, to the delight of thousands of adoring fans.
