Anyone else think there is something inherently wrong about a local sportscaster having a regular beat covering stories about little kids?  If that isn't as akin to leading an alcoholic to a bar I'm not sure what is.  Yikes.

I know Eric Johnson a bit, and he is a decent guy. Most of his "Eric's LIttle Heroes" pieces are very funny and focus on younger kids. As much as I usually cringe at "cute" local news/sports features, his are surprisingly well-written and produced, Based on personal acquaintance, I can vouch for Eric's character. Frankly, I would be much more inclined to hide my kids from some of the posters in this message thread.

Right now we need someone who could bring a presence down low, and I'm afraid his height would be a disadvantage there. Also, we already have an excess amount of small white guys on the team.
