I don’t know about you, but I always thought it must have been pretty cool to be one of those old school sports announcers with fedoras atop their head, holding on to a microphone while giving commentary on the game being played. If you’re anything like me, then you won’t want to miss the opportunity the Washington Wizard’s have in-store this fall.

The Wizards might not be the top dogs when it comes to District sports, but if you love the game of basketball and have an affinity for the team it’d be a waste to not take advantage of their newly announced Public Address Announcer Tryouts.

That’s right, the Wizards are holding auditions for a “new voice” to announce their home games during the 2010-2011 season. Here are the details: Anyone can audition and experience is a plus but not mandatory.

So if you want to stand on that soap box and have a shot of having some extra outside-the-office fun, go ahead and fill out the application. It can’t hurt.

Auditions will be September 13 at the Verizon Center from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
