Jimmy Goldenberg

Journalist

Location icon Canada

My name is Jimmy Goldenberg. I was born and grew up in Chicago, Illinois. I have moved around quite a bit in pursuit of post secondary degrees. In addition to Chicago, I have called Las Vegas, NV, Delray Beach, Fl, Muskeegon, Michigan, Toronto, Ontario, and Niagara on the Lake, Ontario home. I have four university degrees, a BS,MS,MA, and a PhD. I essentially use none of them. For the past ten years I have been involved in thoroughbred horse racing as an owner, trainer, jockey agent, and bloodstock agent. Recently, I put that all behind me, and went back to school to study journalism. I hope to be a sports reporter in the not to distant future.

Hockey is hockey - played standing or sledging

The moisture on the glass made it difficult to see, but the sounds of blades cutting into ice and pucks slamming in the boards were undeniable. As the clock ticked down closer to zero, the players finished warm-ups and lined up for the opening ceremony. The faces looked familiar; determined and anxious.

Collins to the rescue for Mountaineers

Playing the role of a superhero, Kareem Collins waited until the last few seconds on the clock to dramatically save the day. The first-year guard sank two free throws with 6.3 seconds left to give Mohawk a 92-90 lead, then shut down Sheridan guard Dylan Periana on the ensuing possession to preserve the victory and the Mountaineers' undefeated record Wednesday night at the DBARC.

There's hockey played in India?

The Brampton Beast was hard at work preparing for an East Coast Hockey League season opener October 23, when some well-travelled visitors stopped by to watch the practice. The group of young men was from India, and while they were enjoying their Tim Hortons coffee, they didn't travel this far just for a cup of Canadian java.
