James "officially" joined the Phinsider in March of 2009, after a few month's of lurking in a creepy fashion reading articles in a respectful manner from afar. In past history and during a time on the site that we can no longer talk about for a variety of reason, including that pesky order to cease and desist, James was known as texascowpunk or just plain old Tex. After becoming a regular member of the now infamous CKC's and doing all he could, as his civic duty, to torture Nicky on a nightly basis he began to post. Honestly no one had a single freaking clue what he was talking about but since most just assumed that he was just "different", "off" or even in some way dangerous these same post were always heavily rec'd.
Shortly after the bloody (Matty skinned his knee leaving for a new job) and hostile (Kevin and Matty thumb wrestled for the position) takeover of the Phinsider by Kevin, Kevin sent an invite to James via carrier pigeon to become the site moderator. James, confused by the use of middle ages era technology, never managed to retrieve his message. After several more attempts by Kevin and the offering of many fine tapestries, James agreed and joined the staff of the finest Miami Dolphins blog available to man kind, The Phinsider.
James, a life long Dolphins fan from Coral Gables Florida now lives in Denton Texas (that's right, home of the fighting mean green). After many years as a self appointed super hero going only by the name of "Mike Hancho", a year in Bali as a professional spelunker and a life time as a well noted music snob, he now works triple full time (no seriously he works a shit ton of hours) as Director of Operations for Z7 Solutions.
