The last time I started a new job, I was late to work the first day — stuck in Charlotte traffic. Today the commute was easier. About 12 steps from the bedroom to the home office.
Today I officially started working for Project X, which is not really called Project X — we just don’t have a name for the thing yet. It’s a new website born out of a joint venture between USA Today Sports Media Group and MLB Advanced Media. My good friend Joe Posnanski was the first writer they hired. I’m the second. They’ll have some more announcements about Project X soon, I think, and we’ll get the whole thing up off the ground this summer.
In the meantime, I’ll be writing here.
The tech guys with the new venture have spruced up the blog, and I’ve added some features. Holler if anything looks weird or there’s something missing. We’ll keep tinkering with this along and along, and at some point it’ll be folded into the new site.
My paid gig is to write about sports, and that’s what I’ll be doing when I’m on the clock. But from time to time I’ll probably throw in some other thoughts here about music, or a good book, or Fred the Wonder Dog, who is sleeping in the other room on this rainy spring morning.
This is going to be fun. Thanks for stopping by. More here soon.
