DISCLAIMER: I’m cautiously optimistic and blindingly passionate about all my teams.

I’m an adopted son of Buffalo, and support all Buffalo teams. Also a lifelong fan of Everton & Juventus.

Writer on SBN blogs for Sabres - 'Die By The Blade', Everton - 'Royal Blue Mersey', Juventus - 'Black White & Read All Over' and occasionally for UB's 'UB Bull Run'.

Love PBS & NPR. And PBR & NPS. But not NBS & PPR.

Currently live and work outside Boston, under the brilliant decoy name 'Saurabh'.
