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.
Brian McPeek is a lifelong Clevelander who 'famously' worked the sidelines for the Browns during the 1985-86 and 1986-87 seasons, which many of you may remember as "The Drive" and "The Fumble" seasons.
After single-handedly sending the Browns spiraling into the Dark Ages he graduated from Bowling Green State University with a journalism degree. Naturally he went to work in the insurance industry where he's worked for the past 18 years.
Brian lives in Madison with his wife of 22 years, Lisa, and his three daughters, Danielle, Jessica and Kacie.

Carolyn Hastings is a writer, blogger and unabashed Cleveland fan whose work has appeared on CavsNews, Cavs Court, Sports Diva, Women Like Sports and NESW Sports. She writes a daily love letter to the Cleveland Cavaliers on her Cleveland.com blog, And One. When she’s not standing on the coffee table shouting encouragement during Cavs games, Carolyn is wondering why no one ever mentions Frank Basloe, the Waterloo Wonders, the Cleveland Rebels or the Akron Firestone Nonskids. And when she’s not watching basketball, writing about basketball, talking about basketball, or reading about basketball, Carolyn enjoys inhaling outside of Breadsmith on Detroit, wandering the Mohair aisle at River Colors Studio and staring at the river-which-is-so-rocky.
Chris was born in and grew up near in the thriving metropolis of Canton, OH. He graduated from NYU Film School, which was perhaps the biggest waste of money in the history of mankind since We Are The World. After stints in New York City, Miami, and Southern California, he has (for reasons unknown) returned to the football Mecca of his youth. He is investing heavily in cryogenic technology in an effort to stay alive until Cleveland wins another championship.
Cris Sykes is a 30-year-old writer from Mentor, Ohio. He is an eternal optimist with the Cleveland sports franchises. He thought Chris Palmer, Charlie Manuel, and Randy Wittman were all good hires the day they were made. He thought Jeff Garcia was going to be a Pro Bowl Quarterback when he arrived in Cleveland. Keith Hernandez would lead the American League in hitting when he arrived in Cleveland.
A few of Cris’s favorite things ... Athlete: Roger Clemens Day of the year: Opening day for Major League Baseball Team: 1995 Cleveland Indians Coach: Jim Tressel Game: Ohio State over Miami (FL) Book: The Godfather Returns Movie: Pulp Fiction Sports Movie: Major League
In his spare time, Cris usually goes out for some drinks, and is interrupted every few minutes to throw a bowling ball. His 9-5 job is doing research and development for Sherwin-Williams, where he has been working for the last 5 years.
Dan Wismar is a Cleveland Heights native, and a lifelong northeast Ohio resident. Like a million other Ohio boomers, he idolized Rocky Colavito, Jim Brown and Paul Warfield as a kid, and like so many of us, he credits and thanks his Dad for his "fanhood". And though he's old enough to remember 75-cent bleacher seats and Ross Fichtner, he's still young enough to stay optimistic about this town and its teams.Dan has covered OSU sports for The Cleveland Fan since the Spring of '08, the attachment to the Buckeyes being as ingrained in him as the unhealthy Indians and Browns loyalties. In whatever he writes on the local sports scene, he'll always try to bring to the reader the perspective of the home team fan in the stands.
David Regimbal, born and raised in Northeast Ohio, has been a lifelong Cleveland fan. He was four months old when "The Drive" took place, the event that proverbially baptized him by fire in the Cleveland sports experience. He has survived John Cooper, Jose Mesa, Art Modell and Lebron James. He knows he will be asked to survive much more.
While Cleveland is his home, Ohio State is his passion. His dream growing up was to play basketball at Ohio State, but unfortunately, he was built like one of the Olsen twins. That didn't hinder his love for the Buckeyes, and after college, he wrote for multiple blogs and websites covering the Ohio State football team.
Since February of 2010, David has covered Ohio State basketball for TheClevelandFan, providing team breakdowns, game recaps and tournament previews. He also contributes to the Ohio State Football coverage in addition to blogging about the Browns and the Buckeyes for TheClevelandFan’s news wire -- Hitting The Fan.
