So, here's the deal. The Poscast needs a theme song. Well, if you want to get technical about it, the Poscast needs a better studio host, an iTunes home, better sound quality, crazy sound effects like they used to have on the old Hanna Barbera shows, and, of course, free Buffalo wings for everyone.
Some of these things are coming, I think. Well, the better sound should be coming once I get my XML Supercharged Micro-fliptometer with balance lock and hypo-dexterity quasi-mixer and, no, I really have no idea what I actually need to make the sound better. I was speaking jibberish* there. But I know I ordered something or other and I have a couple of people helping me so the sound should be better soon enough.
*I am aware, incidentally, that jibberish is actually spelled "gibberish." I don't like it that way. I do not mean "gibberish." I mean "jibberish."
One thing the Poscast definitely needs is a theme song. We started the first one with some kind of jaunty "From the Wacky World Of Sports!" kind of theme that came free on Garage Band, but we really need something original.
So, that's where you come in because I know -- KNOW -- that one thing you definitely were thinking today was, "Hey, I'm a musician, and I have this great idea in my mind for the Sports Poscast theme song."
So here's the deal -- we're having a contest. You record your ORIGINAL version of the Poscast theme song at the Poscast number (206.202.3157). And if your song gets picked -- and you have to feel pretty good about your chances, I mean how many people do you REALLY think are going to enter here? -- you will get one of the following great prizes*:
-- Two autographed books from yours truly.
-- A new Lexus
-- A dream date with someone I know.
-- A working calculator
*As selected by me.
You will also by honored by the Poscast, where dozens of people from around America will hear your name and smile.
All musical styles are welcome except for anything inspired by John Tesh. I don't want to stifle your creativity here, but I will say that if you do decide to go with lyrics that getting the Poscast slogan -- "I have no idea what I'm doing" -- can only help your chances.
The next Poscast with Bill James will, I hope, be recorded sometime soon. So don't delay. Act now. Operators are standing by.

Postscript: Brilliant reader Ryan almost immediately after this post went up wondered why I would make my little joke about John Tesh when he is the man behind this. Well, Ryan's right. You have to give the man his due.
