Coming Soon to ESPN...TAFKAS
After nearly 10 interviews with various managers and executives via phone and in person I have been hired by ESPN (so long as I pass a standard background check, I'm not worried. FRPLG did a good job hiding the body). So I won't be making any more Len Pasquarelli jokes. Anyhow, my official title will be Program Associate-Motorsports. Which should be interesting seeing as to how my knowledge of motorsports is quite limited. Anyhow, I'll be dealing with all motorsports related scheduling and programming across all ESPN platforms-tv, radio, web, magazine, mobile. Also, I'll be working on Summer Olympic qualifying events programming and lacrosse. For someone who has worked most of his professional career in sports and television I'm really excited about working at ESPN.

As some of you know these past few months I've gone through some pretty rough times both professionally and personally. It's why I wasn't able to do a lot of the things I've done in the past here-for example, create the draft and free agent spreadsheets. Gotta thank the mods, NY_Skinsfan, JoeRedskin, Cpayne5 and Redskins_P for listening to me whine and moan these last few months. So while I know it will be quite a change to up and move out of Washington, DC, my home since birth, and move to Connecticut it will be exciting to face a new challenge and start fresh after these past few months.

Anyhow, sorry for the emotional rant. Just wanted to let you guys know I got a new job with ESPN and I'm pretty excited about it. Also, thanks to my new ESPN colleague EEich for helping me out throughout the lengthy interview process

Re: Coming Soon to ESPN...TAFKAS
Congrats T. Like I said before, this is a great opportunity for you so take full advantage of it. I'll be going up to visit as soon as you're on your feet.

By the way that was a little emotional........a real tear jerker for me :(

Re: Coming Soon to ESPN...TAFKAS
man, that is awesome. Congrats!! This seems like you really want it and all of us here know that you will teach those dopes at ESPN a thing or two. Congrats and good luck

That is great NO pasta jokes anymore??? We will keep that on DL, kiss some ass and we will see TAFKAS on Sportscenter.

I just saw you said you are moving from DC?!?! THe BSB will allow you to make this move if you stay devoted to the skins. Also, if you see pasta belli in the halls, kick him the nuts. Don't worry he won't feel it with all that fat and all, but it is just a figurative kinda thing.

Re: Coming Soon to ESPN...TAFKAS
Wow! That's great news, TAFKAS! Connecticut aint that bad--because it's not far from NYC.

Come down to the city to watch games and we'll hook it up.

PS I've heard that a hazing ritual at ESPN is having to feed Lenny-the-Hut his bucket of pork rinds, fishsticks, and whole roast goat. Be sure to not to breath, and keep hands away from moving parts!

Re: Coming Soon to ESPN...TAFKAS
Congratulations and welcome! See you when you get up here. When do you start?
Let me know if I can help you with info about the area.

Re: Coming Soon to ESPN...TAFKAS
Wow congrats Tafkas! remember, if lenny p. ever invites you to his home, don't accept. He probably despises you because you are a burgundy and gold fan.

Re: Coming Soon to ESPN...TAFKAS
If I had to shut my mouth about that turd Pasta I'd figure a way around it.

Anyways, That is completely awesome TAFKAS. I hope it leads to even bigger and better things for you. Now that you are part of the four letter you'll have to feed us insider info on whether they feed Pasta via a trough or just by throwing raw chickens in his cube ala Jaws. Also we need a copy of the 4 letter's mission statement. I want to read the part about bashing Snyder. I know it has to be in there.
