After intense negotiations the Doin Work team was lucky enough to land the highly sought after free agent writer know around the blogging community as, Sports Guy By! Fortunately for us, he’s heavily into the Bay Area sports world as much as we are. He’s also a contributor for the fantasy website www.hotboxsports.com, so if you happen to read any previews for the Suns, Lakers, or Warriors, he most likely wrote it!
He offers up a slightly different sense of humor and opinion than the rest of us, but that is far from a bad thing! Hell, he might even be the alpha dog of the site before it’s all said and done. There is no doubt in the management’s mind that he will blend in seamlessly with the crew already assembled.
Immediate fan reactions were positive, since most had no idea they could lock up such a quality writer with their obviously very low to non-existent payroll according to Forbes. The growing feeling is that he could single handedly bring Doin Work to the next level! For those that are unfamiliar with his work just check out his blog.

Doin Work was conceived through, like all great ideas, a work e-mail thread. Every day, four or five of us would end up debating various sports topics, often including inane overanalyzation, pompous banter, and witty commentary.
In a recent discussion loosely about Bill Simmons, it ultimately led to discourse on the decline of the art of sports journalism. Too often it has been reduced to rumor-mongering and rants. Not to say Doin Work won’t include those – there will no doubt be plenty of rants. Our goal, though, is to present events or ideas that you have also seen (or not) and turn them into something far more significant than they actually are, for that, is the true art of sports journalism. Our opinions and views often change from day to day, so hopefully through this forum you will get an idea of how fickle our observations truly are. Ideally, our posts will include our ridiculous e-mail threads, which were the basis for this entire endeavor.
Please be sure to bookmark, link, comment, etc. on all that is Doin Work.
