Today is my first day as Executive Producer for SFGate.com, the Bay Area's best portal site and online home of the San Francisco Chronicle (part of Hearst Corporation). Although I'm still sad to have left all the great folks at Yardbarker and FOXSports, I'm very excited to be joining such a well-respected and large website. And those who know me know I never really knew anything about sports anyway -- now I can pretend to know something about news, politics, and all sorts of other things too. Big ups to the folks at Hearst for taking a chance on a basement-dwelling digital-type like myself. When I was in law school and got my first digital gig posting NBA cartoons on AOL's FanHouse, I never would have guessed that I'd eventually end up in a position like this. I will do my very best to make my new employers proud (no more rape jokes for now, I guess... I'm working on my Twitter cred). Thanks everyone for all the kind messages this past week since I left YB. In the words of American poet Nicki Minaj: "I win, thrive, soar, higher, higher, higher, more fire!"
