The best jobs in the NFL are the ones where you earn a paycheck without risking catastrophic brain damage: general manager, kicker, maybe even waterboy. But none compares to the latest job listing from PicksWise: NFL food tester.
The sports betting site is paying lucky fans $500 to go to NFL stadiums and do what they would’ve done at home anyway: stuff their faces while watching football.
So what does an NFL food tester do? Here’s the job description:
“We want someone to go to games and eat the best signature dishes throughout the league to give us a verdict on which team does the best dishes and rating each one from every team to determine who is number one.”
As yummy as the offer sounds, a recent tweet by PickWise suggests the gig could get repetitive fast. They posted a poll today, asking which NFL food is the best between nachos, (hot)dogs, and wings.
While no good American football fan would scoff at those options, things could get repetitive by the 27th nacho plate.
Luckily, the menus have started to evolve.
Many NFL teams are moving beyond the old dog & bun model.
Baltimore might’ve done the best job. The “Baltimore Dip” features a shaved prime rib with aged cheddar cheese, roasted pepper relish, horseradish sauce, and crab dip “au jus.”
Meanwhile, Pittsburgh’s Primanti Bros can’t bring themselves to make a sandwich without stuffing it with french fries and coleslaw. Fine with us.
While the NFL refuses to pay players in bitcoin, NFL fans will gladly be paid in calories.
If you want to give your arteries a little break, look no further than LA. The Los Angeles Chargers offer their own version of a BLT, which includes beets, arugula, and goat cheese.
Interested tasters simply need to respond to the PickWise pinned tweet about the competition. You should post a photo of yourself at an NFL game – or at least pigging out on your favorite snack.
Contestants must be 21 years-of-age and submit their NFL food tester applications by September 9th.
