    Hey, been a while since I've had a chance to be on the board. I've been crazy busy with a bunch of stuff. One of those things is that I have gotten involved with a group that runs some local based online newspapers. These papers are going to be up and running very soon. We're for sure launching one here in Austin and planning on having one set up for Houston and San Antonio.

    Let's just say that I'm very close to the people in charge and they know how deep I am into sports, and they want to tap into that in the form of a sports section in their papers. The main chieftans up in New York may have me do some national stuff too, but that will be down the road possibly.

    So, I'll of course be covering all Houston teams and the Spurs and Horns too. I've been a member of this board for years (used to be under H-Town Balla #90 and I think a name before that too until I lost both log in's) and I would like to invite all of you to read my stuff. I know that some of you already do the same thing either professionally or on the side like I'm trying to do, so I'd love feedback.

    What I have posted so far is basically some demo stuff to feel it out and get some editing stuff down. Keep in mind I'm still a little new at this, but I have a real editing pro who used to work for MSNBC in NYC helping me out.

    If you like what I have to say, you can also follow me on twitter (never thought I'd actually get on of these) under "htownballa80". The blog is under http://runandshoot.wordpress.com/ for now until it is linked to the paper.

    You may see this posted in a few forums here on the board. Not trying to litter, just trying to get the word out and it pertains to the Texans, so I put it in Texans Talk too.

    Thanks.

    Website is up and running.

    Here's my sports section in the paper at http://www.gouverneurtimes.com/atx-...xas-triangle-post-all-star-break-outlook.html

    I'm going by "Jordan on Sports" for now but at the bottom you'll see my contact links at twitter and my run and shoot blog on wordpress where these stories are coming from.

    The main page at www.austincapitaltimes.com is still going under a little construction though. Should have a Houston and San Antonio paper opened soon including my stuff on it. Will post with any updates.

    You can follow the paper on twitter at "atxcaptimes"
