Biography

Originally thought to become a star in the UK professional soccer leagues, JC surprised Europe when he announced his intentions to move across the Atlantic to chase his passion on the basketball courts.

Jamie was born in Bieldside, Scotland, but moved to Newcastle with his mother when he was young after his parents amicably divorced. Sometimes, people both realize they're better off as friends than as lovers. His mother re-married, and so he grew up most of his life with his mom and step-father.

As almost every parent with a young kid would, Golde's mother and biological father agreed to enroll him in an after-school activity, sports being the logical option. His biological Father was a huge football fan and introduced the lad to the sport when he visited his dad one of his visiting weekends. The young mustelid exhibited natural skills that stood out among the rest, and this stoked Jaime's passion for the athletic world. The hyperactive weasel bounced between soccer and basketball, often frequenting classes and scrimmages for both after classes.

In secondary school, JC received an exchange scholarship to visit the United States for a month during summer holiday. There, he met an enchanting girl who lived next door to his host family. JC and other students made visits to museums, the NASA Ames Research Center, and traveled to the Stanislaus Thrust basketball training center. Meeting a professional basketball team, combined with the enthusiasm his American friends had for the game, drove a new passion in the Scottish-Brit.

Once back in England, the university life chapter soon to open, teachers and coaches pushed J.C. more and more to pursue soccer due to his early promise and reputation on the soccer pitch. But it was a different scenario in the weasel's mind; the spark and interest for association football was dying, but people only saw the rising star full-back on the exterior. Little did they know that his visit to America cemented his love and work for the second sport, and for the intriguing American girl.

When he moved back to Scotland for Uni, his performance on the soccer pitch only improved as time progressed. His moral compass wouldn't let him give less than "110% effort, in everything I do. Anything less would only be letting myself down." He'd see his dad in the stands after every home match, beaming no matter the outcome of the game, and used that to keep himself going.

Basketball became a guilty pleasure during the cold and grey months, used as an excuse to change up his workout routine and keep himself pitch ready. Edinburgh University had a decent basketball program which allowed him to hone his skills and get experience playing against other university teams. The defensive and offensive principles of soccer gave him a unique play style on the basketball court that made him invaluable.

After studies and his sports activities, the weasel kept in touch with his lady friend many time zones away. She'd wish him a good night as she hopped the BART home from her part time job. Jamie's best mate Rory would get an ear full about Autumn. He'd heard the story what seemed like hundreds of times, about how they met when Jamie took a Summer exchange program to the states.

"It's not gonna last. Long distance relationships never do." Rory would say, rolling his eyes and taking Jamie by the shoulders. "What about one of the lovely girls at the pub? Or around campus?"

"They don't do anything for me. I got one girl on my mind. She's got a level head on her shoulders, and I love her personality. I'm gonna marry her someday." Jamie said.

"Bollocks. You gonna do one of those internet marriages? Or is she movin’ in with you?"

"We'll be living together, even if I move in with her in the States. We'll do it, Rory."

The end of studies came, and with much anticipation for an announcement about what Jamie was going to do. So much so, that the weasel was booked on a primetime talk show to reveal to the masses whether he was going to play soccer professionally. No one, including the basketball team he played with during many winters, nor his parents or closest friends, could have predicted what would happen next.

Jamie announced on live television that he entered the draft for the FBA to play as a swingfur, and that pending a contract, he'd be moving to either the US or Canada.

Reactions ranged from happiness, amusement, and disbelief, to anger, resentment, and disappointment especially from his closest friend and his biggest critics. Some soccer analysts called him the George Wallaby of football, referring to the Australian actor who played action movie spy James Pond for one film, then turned down a multi-million-dollar contract for further movies. Jamie’s best mate even accused Jamie of being bewitched by Autumn, equating her to a siren who would run his career aground.
