Ed Cohen makes the NY about making an impression

A few weeks ago, I posted a quick story about Ed Cohen's latest job opportunity.

Turns out I'm not the only journalist who took note of it. But even I didn't remember ever talking to Cohen in the past, especially as long as six years ago.

New York Post sports columnist Phil Mushnick did. And he wrote about it in Sunday's newspaper. It's at, registration required.

Here's what Mushnick had to say:

Six years ago we ran into Ed Cohen, a junior at Scarsdale High, at an LPGA/media luncheon (if it isn't catered, it isn't journalism!). He told us that someday he was going to do play-by-play for living. A lot of sports-minded, dream-headed kids say that, with no understanding of what it takes.

But there was something about the way this kid said it.

Last week, Cohen, a 2005 Ithaca College grad, was named Manhattan College's basketball radio play-by-play man.

How's THAT for making an impression?
