The last time we were talking about Lisa Guerrero it was because she and her husband, ex-MLB Pitcher Scott Erickson, were making some sort of movie. The former sideline reporter had basically fallen off the Sports' Map since being dropped after just one season on Monday Night Football. Well Guerrero has somehow found her way back into the Sports World, but this time it's as a blogger for the LA Times. From The Fabulous Forum (catchy) via Sports by Brooks....
One day last June after muddling through yet another one of T.J. Simers' rants -- this time targeting me -- I picked up a pen and delivered a shot of my own.Well then. The combo of TJ Simers and Barack Obama, has to be the oddest source of inspiration for a Sports Reporter, but hey....whatever gets you back in the game right? Plus this site was inspired by Hubie Brown, so I don't really have room to talk. Good to have you in the 'sphere, Lisa!
Inspired by Barack Obama and his "Change We Can Believe In,'' I proposed my change for Page 2. I asked The Times to please allow me to go head to head with T.J. in a write-off. We would each write one column a week for one month and let your readers decide who should write for Page 2. I wasn't kidding!
Amazingly, Sports Editor Randy Harvey contacted me and asked if I was really serious about wanting to write for The Times.
In weeks to come, I'll be writing about sports from an entertainment and pop culture perspective in the Fabulous Forum on latimes.com.
So here I am, armed with pen and paper and fueled by a strong cup of joe. But mostly strong opinions.
