MalloRay
Be Nice To Our Interns
By Kickntrue on 6/30/08
We have two interns starting today. You guys have become too much for two of us- so we've hired extra eyes... good college eyes. So Behave!

Learn a little about them. Also- I've already decided if referring to our interns as a whole- they shall be called "MalloRay." Feel free to use this term as needed.

Mallory
Hi everyone!!!! My name is Mallory but I really can't tell you the last time someone called me that. Mal is more commonly used and much more acceptable. I'm entering my senior year as a Marketing major at Susquehanna University. I'm 21 years old (woot woot) and I enjoy surfing, skiing, baseball, sarcasm (this is your warning), and a really good margarita. I joined oobgolf to get a different take on the sports industry. I want to pursue a marketing career in sports (most likely baseball) and thought it would be a great idea to learn more about a sport that I didn't know much about. It's also a great opportunity to learn more about internet companies and the way they use marketing.

Golf skills? Wait a minute, were they a job requirement. My golf experience as of this week includes two trips to the driving range. Both of which were very successful in my opinion (I hit the ball to the very pretty red flag and it went fairly straight). I also consider myself a Putt-Putt master, which I'm sure will be very helpful.

My goal is to be able to play a round without embarrassing myself and anyone around me. (Sorry guys! I promise the ab workout will be worth the 10 hrs it takes to complete a round.) I would also like to be able to play a respectable round by October, when I head down south to visit my best friend who happens to be a pretty good golfer.

My future career goals: Graduate from SU in the spring and pursue a career in Sports Marketing, preferably with a professional baseball team.

Future golf goals: Well other than making the LPGA tour by 22 and having the full nike/gatorade sponsorship deals by September, I'm looking to make golf a life long pursuit. I would really like to continue my learning and understanding of the sport much into the future.

People should care because I bring a different spin to the world of golf. Before this internship my golf experience included: having a best friend and brother who loved to play and watch golf, and watching Happy Gilmore. I knew who Tiger and Annika were but I couldn't tell you what a birdie or a bunker were and as far as I was concerned, handicap was the closer parking spot, not some part of golfing. This is a huge learning experience for me but I plan on making it fun and funny, if possible. You should also take notice because if you ever thought you were the worst golfer in America, I can assure you, you were very wrong.


Ray
My full name is Raymond Michael Snarski III (dorky?) and I'm 21 years old. I am a dual major; business administration with an emphasis in finance and economics with a general emphasis. I decided to join oobgolf because I think start-up businesses offer an exciting aspect (watching it grow and being proud of your contribution) and it also gives you more opportunities to be creative. One day I too want to own my own business. I plan on getting into investment banking and working on Wall Street for awhile but as I'm doing that I also want to be saving money and thinking of ways to build my own financial advisement company. For this reason I feel like this is an excellent opportunity to learn what it takes to successfully build a business.

My golf experience includes some strong performances of mini golf and breaking two of my buddies clubs at the driving range. He did say they were very old as they were his dad's but nonetheless they probably wouldn't have broken if I had better form. Mallory, I bet you can guess who I'm talking about.

First, my undeniable goal for this summer is to make enough money to pay for my senior year of college! (Ed. Note- Good luck with that.) More importantly it's my goal to end the summer with the feeling of accomplishment due to contributing to oobgolf and its success. I also want to have a better understanding of how to be successful managing a business as I have mentioned earlier. My last goal of the summer is to at least be knowledgeable of the game of golf if not a mediocre player of the game.

You should care that I'm working at oob because I'm your future investment banker who is going to analyze the numbers and data you have provided to discover some interesting facts and correlations. I hope my articles will shock and amaze- and maybe even shake apart some general golf assumptions.

Yep, the smart ass sarcastic remarks will be coming. We'll also need links to your oobgolf games so we can criticize your performance when you play.
But as the title states, we'll be nice. Welcome

I'm bracing myself for the smart-ass comments but I would also like to get some ideas from you so post me a comment or e-mail me at ray@oobgolf.com.

Kickintrue, it's not stealing, it's promoting. Think of it - oobgolf promotes its interns to move on to bigger and better things!

Remember, sometimes its not what you know, but who you know and what better way to network than by a bunch of golf-crazed loonies who make business deals and networking on the golf course!

In the interest of being fair and unsexist.. I think Ray should have to be a caddychick too.

Welcome Newbies. It is great to know that OOB has become big enough for interns. Now Kevin and Andrew, make sure not to dump too much of the work load on them alone (unless you are planning on using your extra time playing golf.)

Mal: Pursuing a career in sports marketing is a great and worthwhile cause. But in professional baseball??? I am positive you will be sorely disappointed! Switch your thinking right now to GOLF! How many women have you seen in the press box, (none), or in the locker room (maybe 1), or as a manager, trainer, or owner of a baseball team, (again maybe 1 as an owner). Your chances are slim to none to make a career out of baseball. Now look at the golfing industry, especially the ladies' side of it. It has grown by leaps and bounds over the past ten years and has a much longer way to go and grow in the future. Be smart! Choose GOLF! You'll be a natural!

Ray: Welcome to the strange world of "OOB". I'm as new as you are to the site, and unfortunately have had to put up a few shields with some of the "elder" members. Although meaning no harm to anyone, there seem to be guys out here who try to eat your lunch for breakfast. Watch out who you converse with. They can be real "downers" and "discombobulators". But don't let it get to you. Have fun! Best regards to you and best of luck!
