Bert: I’m thinning, not balding… I’ve got a lifetime of embarrassing moments just waiting to be shared RCNJ Baseball ’19
Stanzo: Currently banned from TopGolf. Rutgers student, avid Yankees fan, 2-time Intramural Basketball champion. I tell terrible jokes 95% of the time, the other 5% are probably above average
Dave: I’m a whirling dervish of emotion, underambitiously attend Ramapo College, uncomfortable obsession with the Yanks, everyday survivor of Brooklyn Nets fandom
jimmyscaliaNFL: My name is Jimmy Scalia. Big New York Giants fan. Bigger NFL fan. Check out my stuff on Below the Belt !
Riebs: Why am I here? I ask myself the same thing… I credit the founders of BTB with a knack for discovering average talent, and after seeing my bland resume it was obvious that I would fit the job perfectly. Nothing special about me. D3 baseballer, little league umpire with a wicked ball 4 call, and rec league referee who will T up any rowdy parent if they give me a dirty look.
McGons: 2-Time Marist Floor Hockey Champion, easy resume builder. Long suffering Cowboys, Mets, and Nets fan. Follow along for early season optimism, only to end with late season heartbreak.
Reis: Division-I University of Maryland intramural flag football player, Jewish Frat star wannabe
PhillyPhil: All Philly guy. Should probably work for the NHL Network. If you gave me a loaded gun with 2 bullets in a room with Crosby, Brady, and LeBron, I would shoot Crosby twice, pistol-whip Brady, and just laugh at LeBron until he starts crying and flopping. Let’s go Flyers.
Trevor: Rutgers student, avid sports fan, suffering Rutgers supporter, sneakerhead, jersey collector, and the only person to have a below .100 average in intramural softball.
The Jack: Intramural Softball player extraordinaire, I could’ve gone pro if it wasn’t for my bum knee. If you ever catch me watching the Celtics or Yankees and I look calm just know that I’m probably screaming on the inside. Doing my best to bring you some mediocre sports takes.
BRESSI: I’m the hockey guy, occasionally get called horse, don’t worry you dont need to know why. I enlighten people with my knowledge about the game that is played on the frozen water and the greatest trophy in all of sports while cracking a couple miller lites and packen some lippers. If you don’t like hockey, well screw you and if you do like hockey, well still screw you. #11
