A Little Friday-Afternoon Housekeeping

Bet you can't spot the nerdy journalist! (Wait, what are we betting?)
FrontBurner carried a little news earlier today that may interest some of you: Eric Nicholson will be joining the Dallas Observer as the lead reporter on Unfair Park.

Eric was born and raised in Dallas and graduated from UTD, although his collegiate career did some admirable winding, through Montana and Louisiana with a 2,600-mile detour across the Pacific Crest Trail. He cut his teeth at People Newspapers before taking a job covering rural Arkansas. Apparently he doesn't mind nature, which is good because he'll be working out of Schutze's office, which is inside the Trinity floodplains.

Eric, who is married with a son, is a smart dude who knows Dallas, has great news instincts and can unspool a yarn to boot. We're thrilled to have him, and, as a Friend of Unfair Park, he's thrilled to have you as readers. Most of you, anyway.

He starts week after next. First assignment: A where-are-they-now on that chicken.

Damn you Tone! You made me click a link to D. I feel so dirty, and not in that good kind of way.

I,for one, welcome our new Unfair Park overlord.

Why are you following FrontBurner with this story?  Did you not know he was coming here until they printed it?

Am personally sick to death of the sexual tension going on between DO and Dnot. Do it already and get it over with! We don't read DO to find out what's in Dnot. We don't care!!!!

So your own news outlet got scooped by another news outlet that is being bashed by some other person at this news outlet, in fact with the story being about this news outlet....I am shaking my head.....and going to go subscribe to the paywall good night.

Welcome back to Dallas Eric!!! The Dallas Observer couldn't have picked a better journalist/person/livestock detective. Really looking forward to reading your work here and in the print product.

Damn. I'm sure he'll be good, but would have loved to have seen a Cowboys draft article, nba playoffs article, or the upcoming weekend for the Rangers. My holster has slid farther down on my hips, my cowboy hat is almost covering my eyes, and my spurs are dragging behind me leaving deep divots. More sports.

That's definitely me, top right. Maybe I need one of those Merkin things Schutze was talking about?

We don't generally announce our hires, because most readers don't care who does the stories. But once it was out there, we thought it made sense to have the story here.

Seriously, just bang and get it over with already. Please ask Jim to leave the hatcam at home, that could get ugly.

Why are you shaking your head? And I'm really not sure this qualifies as a scoop.

The better question, I think, is why is there no Eric Nicholson watch on ESPN?

Unfortunately he's no longer with us, but he sure was a good hand when he was here.

I'm just kidding, I love the tension.
