I first met Jim a few years ago as a member of the elite softball squad known as Yinz Team and little did I know that the KDKA
weather traffic reporter would become a great friend. When my kids were born Jim made sure we were OK. When times were tough during my layoff he was there as a shoulder to lean on and a bud to have a drink with.
Jim is Pittsburgh. He represents what makes this this city great from his charitable acts to all around kindness. This city is truly losing a son and Boston is gaining a kickass person.
Thank you captain for always being kick ass and make sure I have a couch to crash on when St Patty’s day rolls around up there.
Here is video of Jim’s sendoff from today
