Elmer is originally from Pennsylvania, but for the entirety of the Patriots dynasty has had to put up with their insufferable fans from his current home in Massachusetts. As a long suffering Philadelphia sports fan, he knows more pain that joy, but still loves the Eagles, Phillies, Sixers and Flyers. Somewhere along the way he developed a love for the best team in North London - Arsenal FC. Aside from cheering for his largely underperforming favorites, he is a father of two, a history nerd, and an occasional youth soccer coach.

Originally from Pittsburgh, Jason has found himself living in Queens with his wife and working for a tech company based in the city. A sports fan since birth, he follows the Pirates, Duquesne basketball, Pens, Steelers, and Pistons (Grant Hill would have been better than Jordan if he had stayed healthy...prove me wrong). He enjoys playing in various sports leagues and throwing his money away on fantasy sports. Besides that, a good book and video games for a day would be just fine with him.

Joe Danbusky
Contributor

Joe is an actor who grew up eating, living and breathing sports.  He spent many an afternoon on the soccer or baseball field in his youth (and even gave several other sports a shot) before a series of events put him on the path to pursuing a performing career.  Subsequently, he's worked almost every other type of job you could imagine while trying to support that endeavor.  Whenever he's not working any of those jobs, he can often be found watching, playing or discussing sports in some way.  Most of that banter revolves around the Mets, Giants, Rangers or Manchester United.  His short term goal is to fully convert his fiance into a rabid sports fan, not someone who leaves the room whenever he turns a game on.

Feel free to engage her in her love of the coolest city and prettiest state in the country and why she will always root for Ohio State to lose every sporting event ever.

Ryan Kelly lives in Cambridge, MA, a stone's throw away from his beloved Boston teams. When he is not working as an editorial assistant, he is providing commentary on the Boston Red Sox and Boston Bruins for The Turf.

Terry Cudmore
Contributor

Terry is from Massachusetts and is a passionate fan of the Patriots, Celtics, Red Sox and Bruins. He also will admit he only pays attention to Syracuse basketball when they're good. If there's a Twitter trade rumor even remotely associated with one of his teams, he's likely fallen for it. Finally, he believes 100% that if the Celtics had beaten the Heat in the 2012 Eastern Conference Finals they would have swept the Thunder in the Finals.

Tyler Williams

Baltimore made me. Duval raised me. New York saved me. I'm a Jags fan for life and don't ever disrespect it. I'm Duval Til' We Die #DTWD. Florida Gators over everybody. Dodgers to win it all. Since moving to NYC I have become a Brooklyn Nets fan and am still trying to pick a hockey team. Those are my main rooting interest. I'm the head NFL Writer for the Turf. You can also catch me on Amplified Network where I co-host a podcast called "60 minute suspension" highlighting all off field activity covering all sports. I'm also a very big hip hop fan. You may find some rhymes from my favorite songs in my writing.
