Crawling to the top: How I've gotten this far and why I'd want to work for Charlie Sheen

Crawling to the top: How I've gotten this far and why I'd want to work for Charlie Sheen

That's me in that video -- freaking out about making one of the Top 50 spots for the Charlie Sheen Tiger Blood Internship competition.

It’s been a week since the 250 Round 3 participants found out whether they’ve moved on to the final round or not. I made the cut -- but that’s the last I’ve heard.

I’ve yet to hear from Team Sheen if I’m his Tiger Blood intern or not. I’ll be at his show Friday, so maybe I’ll be able to ask him then.

I’ve got a plan -- a legal one, don’t worry -- to get his attention.
