Gabe Lezra

La Liga Editor

American-born, Madrid-bred, Gabe spends a completely unseemly amount of time looking at pictures of Fabio Coentrão's hair. Which makes some sense, considering he's SBNation's La Liga Editor. In his free time, Gabe runs SBN's Real Madrid blog Managing Madrid--because why wouldn't you want a madridista bias on everything you read? Oh, and studying law. Because he's not sure whether being a soccer journalist is very ethical.
