J.R. Wilco


After over a year's worth of reading the site without ever commenting, J.R. Wilco joined Pounding the Rock at the very end of the 2008 regular season, just before the fantastic series against the Phoenix Suns that began with the double overtime Game 1 victory that was made possible by three pointers that tied the game at the end of the 4th quarter (Michael Finely) as well as overtime (Tim Duncan.) After that, he was hooked, and after being invited by Wayne Vore, who was running PtR at the time, he moved to the masthead as a moderator. Upon WVATS' departure, he took over the site is now overseeing his third season. He lives in Austin with his wife and five children, the jrwlings, which range in age from 13 to 3. He travels to San Antonio to see the Spurs play as often as he can.
