Some guy some of y'all call Flo'z is about to get a record deal with a major. Does that count?

Special thanks to Mr. Hey Kobe Wear Socks Man Emplay. He's the one that told a young flo'z to keep writing, and to not get too down on himself. The exchange happened on twitter and then flo'z saw eric on a reality show about 7 days of sex and thus dropped the name floz immediately. The end.

I knew that kid would make it when I was sitting next to him at Summer Pro League soooo many years ago. Eric was rabid about getting the interviews back then. It paid off for sure and I'm sure bigger and better is still on the way.

Does this mean you'll be sitting next to Bill Plaschke and TJ Simers at the lakers games?

Congratulations, even if it does.

Congratulations Emplay!!

You deserve it. To this day, you are one of the only media guys I can stomach. Larry too but he is such a factual stats guy that he rarely puts himself in position to make opinionated comments that can be a negative take on players.

You take the high road more often than any other sports writer I have come across and I for one, appreciate what you bring to the table.

Hope you got a decent starting contract!?! Good luck!

All right -- fewer facts it will be. Hell, fewer facts could lead to something even bigger for me -- perhaps even the Huffington Post.

But so far no one has talked about the REAL reason Eric took the Times job. There's a pecking order to media seating. Eric often got squeezed out of the courtside seating by more important people -- you know, like me -- so he had to wallow up at the top of 117 or even in the upper press box, while we courtside got a constant stream of adulation, up-close basketball, and Laker Girl foot massages.

But now that he's a member of the LA Times' staff things will change. He'll be right there with us in 108 or 114. Of course, within the Times' staff he'll be the low man on the totem pole, so he'll have to sit behind Bres. And Plaschke. And Simers. And Barry Starvo. And Ben Bolch. And Baxter Holmes. And Brad Turner if it's a Lakers-Clips game. And Mike James.

Okay, never mind -- you'll still be up in 117. But I'll see if I can get Bres to chip in a foot massage now & then.
