Exciting Stuff

Wil and I have been super busy these past few weeks trying to make some moves on the career front. While we both have been pretty successful so far, what my husband has managed to pull off is blog post worthy. 

My guy, like so many others, is OBSESSED with basketball. I can't begin to tell you how many hours of our relationship I have spent watching Wil watch highlights on NBA.com (I make fun of the sound at the beginning of every video. I'm sure many of you ladies know the sound I'm talking about) and listening to in depth game analysis between him and his male family  members and guy friends.

He's really passionate about the game and obscenely knowledgeable about its history, too. I finally made the suggestion that he start up a basketball blog to share his NBA insights with more than just the men around him...and he did! On The Off Court made its debut earlier this month and it's made me so happy and proud to see my Love Cub blogging away about his favorite subject. That's all good and exciting, but I haven't even gotten to the best (blog post worthy) part...

Last weekend, he was surfing the Internet and happened across an ad for a staff writer position on the New York Knicks's fan site, Buckets Over Broadway. He showed it to me and jokingly suggested he apply for it; I didn't see the humor in his suggestion. I told him to do it. And guess what, folks...with only three posts to send in as writing sample pieces, my husband was HIRED as a staff writer for his favorite basketball team! 

I tried to post a screen shot of my man's name on the staff page (because it's not real unless there's photo documentation), but Blogger is being supremely wack for me today. Anyway, I am over the moon happy for Wil and can't wait to see where this opportunity leads him. I'm glad to be tagging along for the ride. I'm telling you, 2012 is the year of The Riveras.
