Happy Birthday, HardballTalk

Today is the seventh anniversary of the launch of HardballTalk at NBC. Which in those days was called “Circling the Bases.” I was part time then, still practicing law, and wouldn’t be full time for another few months, but April 6, 2009 was really the day I consider to be the start of my professional writing career.

Once in a great, great while I’ll complain about my job. The complaint lasts three seconds before I remember, “Holy crap. They pay me to write whatever I want about baseball.”

Some stuff in life sucks. My job does not, and I am very, very, thankful for that.
