    So most of you probably remember the drama around me getting my current job, which I started January 2nd, 2006.

    About 5 months ago, I had passed my resume to a friend who works at ESPN. It wasn't really to expect anything, it was just a classic case of "keeping it on file". So, this past Saturday, I got an e-mail asking if I was still interested, as they knew I just started somewhere new.

    "OF COURSE!" was my reply....

    I had interview #1 on Wednesday....interview #2 is scheduled for Tuesday the 31st. Apparently, I can be hired and start the next day if they like me enough.

    I don't know if anyone watched the show "Dream Job" when it was on, but this really would be it for me. I would get a HEALTHY pay raise, even to more than I would make after my $5,000 raise in 6 months here. I'm so excited.......................

    Thanks :)

    I'm soooooo nervous/excited/impatient :)

    I'm an internal referral, so I hope that will help my chances.

    Downside would be my shift is 6P-3A to start, but that is primetime for Sportscenter so I would have the chance to make a good impression :)

    Well good luck. And if you're nervous enough, remember to wear deoderant to the interview, so it isn't overly apperent ;)

    Reminds me of when I had my driving test while still in high school. Was so nervious, and perspired so much, that the wet spots on my shirt extending from my arm pits, formed an oval about 1.5' in length :eek: I noticed it when I was done and heading home...

    Funny thing is, I'm not nervous at all. I know my credentials, what I can do, and what to expect. I'm just so anxious because I'm excited :)

    Also, I wear Old Spice Red Zone all the time, no underarm sweat here :cool:

    Abstract thinking?

    "Yes sir, we need to buy a new system, and some other things to make it watertight. We are going to fill it with Football player sweat! If it is good enough to cool them, it is good enough to cool a PC!!!"

    Knowing KC,

    He's already setting up his family pictures on his new desk.

    It's the desk beside the six-foot-tall bust of Muhammad Ali.
