At a time when the economy is in the dumps and people are struggling to pay bills, the New Jersey Nets have come up with a way to attract the unemployed to their games. No, it is not James Gandolfini appreciation night. NJ.com is reporting, that for every unemployed fan of the Nets, who submits their resume to the Nets Job Bank gets up to four free tickets, plus access to a Nov. 22 career fair at their home arena. Unfortunately for me, I have a job and I like the Nets about as much as I like a pimple on my “lady friend’s” ass. More from NJ.com:

In a nod to current economic conditions, the basketball team will give unemployed fans who submit their resumes to the Nets Job Bank up to four free tickets, plus access to a Nov. 22 career fair at their home arena, team president and chief executive Brett Yormark said. The team also will distribute applicants’ resumes to its sponsors.

“Hopefully they’ll come out and experience the Nets, and then when times get better they’ll invest in us, because we invested in them,” Yormark said. “No other team is doing that, and I think it’s the appropriate thing to do, because times are tough.”
