2009-04-10 16:30:00 (link to chat)Christina: Love the BP Idol idea. Since you're essentially scouting for talent, is the requirement to submit a headshot really a thinly-veiled attempt to determine which contestants have "the good face"? And what are the five tools you'll be grading on?
(Disasterpiece Theater from PBS - Positively Bad Start)
Thanks DT, we figure it'll be fun, but we also want to afford the same opportunity to others that many of us here had the opportunity to enjoy at one point or another. I don't think we have m/any Bonifacios out here as much as I suspect we want to attach the pics with the people who make the grade and compete. Hrm, five tools... for me, I know I'll be looking for baseball knowledge (the game, the present and/or its history), a comfort with doing research (which can mean a lot of things), and a facility for making their keyboards sing.

Color me curious: Was there a Joe Cowley special on PBS? (Christina Kahrl)
