Patti Dawn Swansson is a sports journalist of 30-plus years who has written for a number of major Canadian dailies, including the Toronto Sun, Calgary Sun, Winnipeg Sun and Winnipeg Tribune.
Her work has also appeared in many other dailies, including the Montreal Gazette, Toronto Star, Edmonton Journal, Calgary Herald and a handful of U.S. sheets.
She once hosted her own sports radio talk show on CJOB in Winnipeg.
Mind you, that gig only lasted about seven weeks, because she realized most of the people who call sports phone-in shows really need to get a life.
So she returned to writing about sports for newspapers, but only for another three years when she realized she needed to get a life.
She has a life now and often writes about the real world, but she still scribbles about sports...for kicks rather than a pay cheque.
(A word of caution: If you take her seriously and get your knickers in a knot over something she writes, she will not agree to pay for your psychiatric sessions.)
