The writers for Sports Gab Network
Aaron wrote an internationally presented case study on Vikings fans from a social psychological perspective many years ago and has since refrained from turning his writing away from all things Vikings. Interested in the social interplay between fan and team, Aaron has contributed to several message boards and Vikings blogs in an attempt to find some type of fan ownership in the laundry that many people cheer. Has he succeeded? Not yet, as his wallet and individual obscurity can attest, but Aaron remains excited to join the staff at Vikings Gab to share the experience of the ever changing reality of Vikings fans.
Adam Hutchinson is a graduate student/sometimes college instructor in philosophy. While a lifelong football fan (including a 4 year stint as a nose tackle in high school…a pathetic 4 year stint), he has been an avid Steelers fan since moving to Pittsburgh from his native Kentucky several years ago. When not cracking the books (or cracking down on students) he enjoys learning the intricacy of Dick LeBeau’s blitzing schemes. Finally, he is very excited to get the chance to interact with the larger football community, especially all those rabid black and gold enthusiasts.
Adam M. Warwas is a life-long Vikings fan living in Alaska (the land of 10,000 Minnesotans). He is extremely excited about the opportunity to write about his favorite subject at Vikings Gab. Adam has much writing experience, but this will be his first attempt to write about sports. He has taken courses in scouting under Russ Lande and John Wooten at Sports Management World Wide. He hopes to bring his passion for the Purple to the pages of vikingsgab.com every day between now and when we see them win their first Super Bowl… SKOL Vikes!
I believe everyone is aware that Anthony Guggino translates to “Sports Aficionado” in Latin. Don’t believe me, Google it. The name is quite appropriate too due to the fact that for nearly a quarter century he has devoted a preponderance of his life trying to become the Schwab to stump. He has studied the history of sports, researched in a freelance manner for the past decade, and digested any material that is sports-related in order to keep his ESPN statistician status in tact. He played tight end in high school and as a freshman, he started on a varsity team that had a record of 11-2 in the state of Florida and in 1998 won the Western Conference Championship. This high school team produced four of the nation’s top prospects in 1998 and one of his teammates was named “Mr. Football of Florida”. His team fell one win short of a state championship after suffering a loss to a well-known “professional football factory” of a high school in Belle Glade, Florida.
B. Clifton Burke is a life-long Cincinnati native and has blogged about the Bengals since 2006 under the pseudonym, Mojokong. He is very nearly finished earning his bachelor’s degree in Journalism from the University of Cincinnati, and also is a sports writer for the school’s student newspaper, The News Record. B. Clifton has written sports for the Cincinnati Enquirer and has also been published in The Pulse. He hopes to provide entertaining insight and analysis of our beloved Bengals to his readers.
Ben Bunce is a die-hard Broncos fan ready to provide the voice of the fan while using his writing skills to invite intelligent thought and feedback on many issues related to the team. Ben is anxious for the chance to prove himself to the Broncos community and help BroncosGab grow to its potential.
Bernard Shuford is a longtime Packers fan from Western North Carolina who offers a casual but loyal perspective. He works as an Automation Engineer for a small machine shop and blogs regularly at www.bernardshuford.com. He honestly believes that Brett Favre is the greatest quarterback of all time, even though he once felt the same way about Joe Montana. He’s learning a lot about football as he follows his son’s “career” with the Bethel Termites.
Brant was born and raised in central Pennsylvania. He started following the Miami Dolphins when his uncle would watch them on TV all the time. Really they were the only team on at the time, so naturally Brant would pick to follow the Dolphins since they were always on TV and at the time, always winning! Brant is heavily involved in the sports media area, and follows the Dolphins like no other whether it’s listening to Sirius NFL Radio on game day for the latest updates, or checking over 10 different blog sites for the latest off season news on his favorite team.
Brian was born and raised in the north suburbs of Chicago. He spent 6 years in the Army split between Aurora, CO and San Antonio, TX. After his term in the military he tried various jobs ranging from chimney sweep to bouncer before finding himself in construction as a Union Pipefitter. Brian and his wife Hope are Bears fans who are devoted followers and supporters of the team. He looks forward to sharing his pride and passion for the Chicago Bears.
