Someone once said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Though exactly who said it is up for debate, I think we’ve discovered the job that guy was talking about: professional pizza eater and sports watcher.
Yesterday, Pizza Hut announced that they are seeking to fill the position of “Pizza Hut All-American.” According to a press release, the “one passionate sports fan” chosen to take the gig will be offered $50,000 “to travel to as many Division I NCAA championships as possible, sharing their journey with millions of sports fans everywhere.” The concept is similar to the “Drink It Intern” bar chain World of Beer offered earlier this year, paying people to travel around the country drinking tons of beers and documenting the experience on social media. In an ideal world, some sort of reality TV show would document which of these people managed to put on the most weight during their tenure.
Pizza Hut is launching the contest to promote its new multi-year agreement as the Official Pizza of the NCAA. That includes getting involved with all 90 NCAA championships happening during the 2016-2017 college sports season “from basketball and hockey, to bowling and beach volleyball, and beyond.”
