For one day, I have a job

Today marks the four-month anniversary since I left my job at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, and curiously, I finally have a job.

OK. It's only for 1 day.

One of the sports editors from the Austin American-Statesman, a guy whom I briefly supervised some 10 years ago when we were both at the Star-Telegram, asked me last Friday if I wanted to write a few stories for the sports department. Two of the Statesman sportswriters would be on vacation and they needed a body to help cover this big high school sports convention in town.

So, I'm going to write about sports for the first time since I covered the Mavericks/NBA in the Spring of 2002. It won't be Dirk Nowitzki or Steve Nash today, but it will be a high school all-star basketball game. Maybe I'll see a future NBA player.

And more importantly, if the Statesman big-wigs like my work, maybe this is the beginning of my luck turning on the job front.
