Jason Arias- Staff Writer

Student at Binghamton University. Mets/Knicks/Islanders fan (Eagles, too) so I’ve never seen any of my teams win anything. Still love ‘em though. Just finally getting over the 2006 NLCS. Disappointed fan since ’92.

Gavin Ewbank- Staff Writer
Born in Manhattan and raised in Bergen County Terence comes from the rare breed of Devils-Knicks-Yankees-Jets fans. A hockey addict, he has a New York Ranger inferiority complex that would make Sigmund Freud drool. Terence has been known to throw up a brick on the basketball court and emit a soft grounder to second on the diamond as well.

I’m a cradle to the grave Mets, Jets, Knicks, and Rangers fan; I patiently await the day when one–just one–of these teams ceases disappointing me, so that I may come to know championship bliss.

Lifelong sports fan, some of my earliest memories growing up revolve around making trips to the Carrier Dome to watch Syracuse engage in battles against their Big East brethren. Huge Yankee and Knicks fan, I was lucky enough to witness the last game played at the Old Yankee Stadium and first game at the New Yankee Stadium. Graduate of SUNY Geneseo, I spend a good portion of my free time talking, reading, and writing about sports, and to this end created PAC’s Sports and Entertainment Forum (http://paulyard20.com/) where I serve as the head writer.
