Sandpoint Native Markets SF Giants

Since graduating from Sandpoint High School in 1999, Jens Weiden has won two World Series rings, run some of the nicest golf courses in the Bay Area, and rubbed elbows with the likes of Willie Mays, Magic Johnson, Shaq and countless other celebrities. Now Weiden is about to become the chief financial officer of the Rose Bowl, overseeing everything from ‘The Granddaddy of Them All’ football bowl game to Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z concerts, not to mention UCLA football games, international soccer events and plenty more. To say hometown boy makes good would be stating the obvious for the 32-year-old Sandpoint native, who is currently the marketing manager for the San Francisco Giants, hoping his team can win a third World Series during Weiden’s sixth and final season with the Bay Area baseball team/Bill Plummer, Bonner County Bee. More here.

Question: If you could work for a professional sports team, what team would it be and what job would it be?
