Are you a "geek with style and a passion for sports?" Jay Mariotti wants you to design his blog. At least I assume that's who is responsible for this Chicago Craigslist post which went up on Wednesday afternoon, which states a "major national sports personality website is looking for a talented webmaster/designer." Apparently all those new media job offers that Jay was weighing when he quit the Sun-Times haven't panned out as he had hoped. So he's starting his own site, by golly. Get ready to add Jay to your blogroll! From Craigslist:
