UPDATE: Never one to miss an opportunity to hustle, I sent this email to Guardian Online Sport editor, Sean Ingle.
Dear Mr. Ingle,
I couldn't help but notice your Canada national page on the Guardian Football site is blank. As you may or may not know, in addition to regularly contributing content to the Football Weekly podcast, free of charge, I am the author of one the most popular and influential soccer blogs in the country. My blogging prowess was in part recognized when I was declared the runner-up in the ill-fated Big Blogger 2008 competition.
So to cut to the chase, here is my offer; I will write a couple of Canada stories to fill that blank page pro bono, and if you and the Guardian on-line community likes what they see, you take me full time on at or slightly below the standard rate.
I will send a CV upon request, and I humbly await your response,
Always oversell yourself, kids. I'll update you on the response.
