The North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee is looking for a few good men.
More than a few, to be precise: 10,000 volunteers are needed.
The host committee began a campaign to recruit those volunteers on Thursday, 289 days before two teams square off for the NFL championship at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.
There will be dozens of events between now and Super Bowl XLV for which volunteer help will be needed. Opportunities include greeting visitors at the airport to answering phone calls.
And — in case you were wondering — no volunteers will be employed at the actual Super Bowl game on February 6, 2011.
