My name is Jon, and I live in Canada which means my blog posts will probably contain the word 'sorry' in them a lot. I've been covering the Vancouver Whitecaps for the past two years, and I also write for PuckLife Magazine, and UVanU Magazine.

Besides writing, I'm a huge Clint Eastwood fan and I love the Mass Effect video game series. (Except the third one. DON'T GET ME STARTED ON THE THIRD ONE.) I'm also absolutely terrible at all FIFA video games, although I play them regularly.
