My name is Jim Brown and my blog, The Sporting Life, might better be described as Jim Brown's Sporting Life. It came into existence on June 14, 2011, long after I came into existence on January 19, 1947. You can do the math. My intent is to use this venue to scratch my continuing itch to write and communicate, which I have done for most of my life. If I can manage to provide something that you find interesting, provocative or entertaining enough to return to from time to time - I will be pleased - but the itch will still be there.
