Caitie was not always a hockey fan. Growing up in a family that never followed any kind of sports (unless you consider Irish Dancing a hardcore sport), she didn’t start following it until she was 13. During the next 8 years, she became engrossed in it and she might be considered one of “those” fans. She is a Boston Bruins fan who keeps coming back to them even if they break her heart season after season. If hockey was a major in college, she would be the valedictorian. She tries to frequent as many games as she can on a college student’s budget. Yeah, that’s not many. You can find her on Twitter at @dear_gravity where you can read her deep (and under 140 characters!) thoughts during games and any other intelligent thoughts that she might have between them.
Cameron Frye is most known for letting her words get her in trouble. A life long sports fan, she started writing about sports when she felt her voice and opinion weren’t being heard. If only didn’t she didn’t find out about blogging. Usually annoyed, thanks to her day job, Cameron can usually be found spewing nonsense on her blog, CameronFrye.com and has been featured on such sites as Deadspin, HubHockey, Bostonist and much to their dismay, New England Comcast Sports Net. When not writing badly, Cameron can be seen screaming explitives at her television set during games, calling the opposing teams ‘C-Sucking Whores’ and plotting how she can talk the Bruins organization into trading for Brooks Laich.

Kat knew she wanted Peter King’s job a mere week after her 13th birthday. An avid devourer of all sports, she obsesses over college and minor league hockey, box lacrosse, pro football, gymnastics and yes, even figure skating. Her defining moment came at age 14, when a sportswriter for her local newspaper in Upstate New York told her that females didn’t belong in the press box. The next month, Kat publicly beat him and two of his colleagues in the newspaper’s “NFL Pick ‘Em” two weeks in a row (she would have come back for a third week, but they told her to move aside for others to have a chance). Kat is the National Lacrosse Examiner (www.examiner.com/x-1475-Lacrosse-Examiner), writes guest columns all over the place, and runs “…On Being a Sports Girl.” (www.sportsgirlkat.com) Contact her at sportsgirlkat AT gmail.com .
Katie was not always as hockey obsessed as she is now, baseball used to have the number one spot in her heart (she owns over 200 Red Sox shirts). While always a fan of both sports, hockey took its first step in the crazy direction during the winter of 2004-2005 (interesting timing, for sure) because that’s when she was given her first opportunity to become a hockey player! Since then, her love for the Bruins and BU Terriers has deepened and is a daily topic of conversation. A self-proclaimed “numbers nerd” and “captain of useless information” people frequently turn to her for stats and oddities. Her life is consumed by sports – she is pursuing a degree in Sports Management while also coaching high school hockey and sharing season tickets for the Bruins. Aside from being a fan of major sports, she’s also enjoys cycling, gymnastics, and the Little League World Series.
Slew is a New York native who began her secret love affair with Boston sports in the Spring of 2005. She came out to her family gradually as a Patriots fan which wasn’t taken too hard. However, in 2007 she went to her father’s house wearing a Red Sox tee shirt, and was subsequently written out of the will. These days Samantha spends most of her time watching sports, writing about sports (Check out her other columns at www.cmsbmedia.com!), and getting into arguments about sports with her boyfriend. In her spare time she works a “real” job. She also fields harassment calls and texts from her family when Boston teams aren’t doing so hot. You can contact slew at samjlewis AT gmail.com
