Jim Welp

Jim Welp is a polo-playing astronaut deejay novelist who works undercover as an American spy except in summer, when he plays centerfield and bats cleanup for the Oakland Athletics. After an early stint shot-gunning Pabst Blue Ribbon, he launched a professional career that led to a personal fortune estimated at several thousand dollars. Today he is a co-owner of the Denver Nuggets (not the NBA team but rather some nuggets of indeterminate origin once owned by “Gilligan’s Island” star Bob Denver) as well as several popular clubs, including a jack and an ace. He still rides his bike past the house he shares with his wife of 34 years, hoping to catch a fleeting glimpse of her.
