The ’72 Project is pleased to announce Sports Writer Jim Prime will be a periodical contributor to ’72 Project blog posts.
Prime recently co-authored with Paul Henderson, “How Hockey Explains Canada”. Henderson and Prime offer intelligent discourse on Canada’s national sport that goes far beyond the sport’s most-loved icons, great plays and notorious brawls and looks into the history and culture of the game to explain why hockey has had such an enigmatic hold on Canadians.
Prime has written more than a dozen sports-related books and has contributed articles to various periodicals. He has coauthored books with the immortal Ted Williams and the immoderate Bill “Spaceman” Lee. He grew up a rabid Montreal Canadiens fan on Long Island at the southwestern tip of Nova Scotia. Jim is co-founder of the Bluenose Bosox Brotherhood and acting Lieutenant-Governor for Nova Scotia of Red Sox Nation. He lives with his wife, Glenna, in New Minas, Nova Scotia.
