Brian Bassett of TheJetsBlog.com, has blogged about the Jets (how about that for self-loathing?) pretty much every day since September 2004, starting his blog as a cathartic outlet due to living in and amongst "Patriots fans." You know Patriots fans ... they are that group of people who didn't exist before the team's second SuperBowl victory. Brian has unsuccessfully tried to ruin sites like FanHouse and The Grey Lady's football blog, Fifth Down.
Andrew is the founder and co-writer of The Grand National Championships (or as the hip kids call it...Cake Rocks The Party). He is from the great state of Wisconsin and he will fight you if you say anything bad about Chromeo. Before the Sportsblog, Andrew wrote promotional comic books for your Milwaukee Brewers and fears their appearance in the blogosphere. His heroes are Kung-Fu Monkey Superspy Rex Mantooth, father of the Nutshot video Vin Di Bona, and Lech Walesa. He believes there is magic in being independent and stupidity in not getting paid for your work. He can be kinda dumb sometimes.
Scott Sargent is a co-founder/editor of Waiting For Next Year, a Cleveland-centric abode furnished with plenty of non-championship colloquium. Born and raised just outside the mid-market metropolis, Scott spends the majority of his days plugging his ears (la la la..) during LeBron James 2010 talk and counting down the days until the Indians are mathematically eliminated from the postseason. Sure, other cities may have rings and banners, but Cleveland will always have Carl Monday. Scoreboard.
