Thanks Club Lakers for all the support through the years - I'll be moving my Laker coverage to the LA Times on their blog. I've been doing more national over recent years - so there will be a lot more Laker material coming!

Awesome Eric....congratulations !! :beer: Maybe you can be the "classy" quality B Ball guy for them in some ways and in your "own" way from what we lost when they let Heisler go. Good for you and great chance to shine!

Big ups to you Eric! When I was about 10 or 11 years old, we had a school field trip to the magnificent L.A. Times building downtown... I still have a great "roll" of photos I took. It led to my minor in journalism and a 7 year career as a music journalist out of college. I revere the Times greatly. ...and maybe you can use your new platform to do something for your friends here and make some noise about TWC's stranglehold on the Lakers community and fanbase. It boggles the mind to wonder how can they be so stupid as to do this right off the bat, as they are trying to establish their SportsNet channel. Why didn't they do a reasonable deal for other cable providers to acquire their channel, allow Lakers fans to accept them as the new network and get used to them, then, a season or two later, raise the rates on the carriers? Now right off of the bat, they have rubbed fans the wrong way and left a bad taste in the mouth towards their shiny new SportsNet. And I'll bet the Lakers advertisers, sponsors and licensees are not pleased that games are only being seen in about 20% of the homes they previously were. ...anyway... sorry for this written here... we are all very happy for your new gig man! Best to you.
