About JTurner

I’m enamored by the larger-than-life personalities in sports today. Ever since Ickey Woods danced across my tv and his “Shuffle” became a national phenomenon, sports took on a new meaning. Sure, there is still some purity in the game but 99% of it is about image, personality and self-promotion. My writing perspective focuses on these aspects of the game. I hail from the great state of Massachesetts, have two sons and live in Seattle. I’m a closet Seahawks fan. Don’t tell my sons.
