My older brother applied for the Cubs announcer job and was rejected. Even his own family thought he stunk, so it's no surprise. However, what is surprising is the rejection email that he received. He's going to get a free game for entering which is a nice gesture. The email also says to be on the lookout for games with $10 seats in the Bud Light bleachers.
I know many STH were upset last year when the Cubs discounted bleacher tickets...are they possibly doing the same thing again? Maybe this is only for people who entered the contest, it's not totally clear to me in the email. Decide for yourself...
Here's the email he received:
Thank you for your submission to become the next Public Address Announcer for the Chicago Cubs
! We were thrilled to have so many phenomenal and passionate auditions. Your creativity and enthusiasm made our job incredibly rewarding. We are truly fortunate to have so many great fans (and great voices).
As you might imagine, it has been extremely difficult to narrow down the field to 25 candidates. While you are not one of the finalists, we would still like to see you at the Friendly Confines. As a gesture of our appreciation, we would like to extend an offer to enjoy beautiful Wrigley Field.
Please be on the lookout for an email in the coming days inviting you to a game on us as well as a great ticket offer to enjoy games in the Bud Light Bleachers for $10.
Again, thank you for your submission. Your passion truly inspires us.
The Chicago Cubs
