Like many typical young men, Jim was raised around sports and became an enthusiastic follower of and participant in several. This eventually led to taking on the mens' basketball beat while a student at the University of Calgary, a role he held for three years. That role expanded to include sports editor duties and afforded him the opportunity to cover almost every sport played on campus at one time or another. In his final year, he was awarded a co-editor role, running the paper and moving his writing into more of an ed-op role.
Jim's love of sports has stayed with him and he continues to keep an eye on a number of different sports, from baseball to basketball to curling to hockey. More recently, he has discovered, and become mildly obssessed with, indoor lacrosse and has become an avid supporter of the Calgary Roughnecks of the NLL.
Jim has been coaching baseball locally for 25 years and honestly has no idea what he would do with his summers if he wasn't on a ball diamond terrorising high school age kids.
Writing at the Bleacher Report has also led to an ongoing gig at StadiumJourney.com as their Canadian Prairies Regional Correspondent, at H4-entertainment.com as their lacrosse analyst and at InLacrosseWeTrust.com as their Roughnecks writer.
You're welcome, Jim! Keep up the good work.
Please keep writing CFL articles. If you want an opinion from a CFL expert message me at any time. I used to write articles years ago but i forgot my password and my new account I can't write on or else I would still be doing it.
I used to get 4,000 to 6,000 reads an article/slideshow and now the CFL section is dead. Please keep it alive!
Haha no problem. Punctuation is easy to forget in a title. I've missed it's vs its before, and I'm an editor on the site...
You are most welcome, Jim. And don't worry too much about the hyphen—it happens all the time on the site. Maybe it was just a dash of bad luck.
Jim, will you be doing an article on this year's Canadian College Draft?
No problem at all, Jim. Lacrosse is a sport I'm not very familiar with, but your article was still easy to read.
Yes, even parts of the USA don't observe daylight saving time; much of Arizona and Hawaii. If you prefer to specify the times, EDT for daylight time works just fine. Cheers from California.
You're welcome, Jim. Anytime!
Yes, those tricky em dashes. Thanks for the comment, Jim, and I'll look forward to seeing more of your articles!
Not a problem, Jim. Happy to help!
