About Me

Jim has been a sports nut since way back and has seen most of the sports played in North America at one point or another. He spent several years back in his university days in the 90s as a sports writer for the University of Calgary's student newspaper. Since 2012 he has gotten back into writing at BleacherReport.com, h4-entertainment.com, InLacrosseWeTrust.com and of course right here. Jim has coached 25 years of high school age baseball, is completely obsessed with watching box lacrosse (BEST SPECTATOR SPORT. EVER.), and finds it amusing to refer to himself in the third person.
