Bio coming ...
Rich Swerbinsky is the editor-in-chief for TheClevelandFan.com and President of TheClevelandFan.com, LLC. Tired of a lack of alternatives for Cleveland sports news, talk, and opinion ... he created this website, bringing it to the web on February 1, 2006.
Swerb has been a maniacal fan of the Browns, Cavs, Indians, and Buckeyes since about the age of four, and has always loved to express himself in words. He wrote for a number of different publications and websites before creating The Cleveland Fan, and now pours everything he has into this site, which has continued to grow and thrive since inception.
Swerb's other loves in life are movies, golfing, reading, fantasy sports, cooking, craft beers, his wife Hallie, his six and a half year old son Nicholas and his three and a half year old daughter Chloe. Nicholas is already a proud and passionate Cleveland sports fan at a very young age, just as his father was.By day, Swerb manages the residential lending division for First Federal of Lakewood on the west side of Cleveland and maintains a personal blog at www.TheDailyDishOnline.com.
Swerb loves to hear feedback on his columns, as well as his websites, as he is always looking for ways to improve them. He can be contacted by clicking on the link below.
Adam Burke, 26, is a lifelong Clevelander who spends nearly every night of his summer watching Tribe games and nearly every night of his winter watching whatever hockey game is on TV.Amazingly, Adam has a phenomenal woman to whom he is engaged who actually puts up with his love of sports and gambling. Adam has since converted Jennifer into a diehard Indians fan and a fan of hockey, despite her southern upbringing.For TheClevelandFan, Adam writes his weekly View from the Porch column, as well as Indians game recaps, series previews, and assorted other Indians columns. In the fall, he will also contribute a betting column for football weekends.
Al has been an Indians fan since birth, and has followed prospects since his dad took him to see Jim Thome and Reggie Jefferson play for the Canton-Akron Indians. He grew up in Aurora Ohio, and walked on the football and baseball team at Mercyhurst College in Erie, PA where he was one of the top Division II scout team tight ends in the country and a solid bullpen catcher with an advanced approach. Al currently makes his home in Fairfax, VA where he gets to see the Aeros and K-Tribe several times a year. In addition to loving the Indians, he is a die-hard Browns, Buckeyes and Cavs fan, and makes several trips home to Ohio to tailgate and drink Christmas Ale.
Andrew Clayman is an Akron native and Bowling Green State University grad currently making his home in Chicago, IL. Despite having moved out of state, he is a firm believer that certain other Akronites should stay home and play for their nearest local professional sports team for the full extent of their careers
That said, Andrew has already sacrificed his youth and sanity for perennial heartbreak as a Browns, Indians, Cavs, and Zips fan. He was in the stands at Browns Stadium on Bottle Throwing Day, and his father was at 10 Cent Beer Night. The tradition runs deep. Mention Cory Snyder's mustache, Dwayne Rudd's helmet, or Cedric Henderson's jump shot and you've got a conversation on your hands. After all, when the big picture is this hard to look at, might as well focus on the funny little details.
