This Just In: SF in Re-Employment Shocker!
You may have read in one of "the trades" this morning that your man SF has messed around and got himself a job. And despite the fact that it is written on the internet it is actually true: I am now under the employ of Major League Soccer. I feel like I was relegated and now promoted all in the span of 3 months.
Pretty nuts right? Not really. I'd been trying to get out of MTV and into MLS for over 3 years so it's been something of a long, winding road littered with blog posts, unrealised job interviews and consultancy gigs along the way. It took a while but being that one of the things --the main thing at the moment-- that I'll be working on will be to help craft the league's new website (coming in March 2010...hold on to your butts) I couldn't be more happy about it regardless of how long it took; as a fan of American soccer, to get a chance to show & prove to the world and not just my message board-frequenting brethren is an opportunity as rare as scoring at the Azteca.
As for what this means for TOR I'm not sure. Hell it might get revamped as well because no one, especially me, wants to see it go away so don't go deleting it from your favorites or anything. And as much as I would like to give the Peter Griffin thank you speech right now I will refrain as I don't want to be all "look at me" when I'm feeling nothing but thankful that I am working again and doing something I'm passionate about.
Now then...who wants to meet me out for an after work drink?
