Growing up minutes from the Old Boston Garden and the New TD Garden John eats, breaths, and sleeps Boston sports. He is a big fan of the Patriots, Red Sox, and Bruins but the Celtics are the team that is near and dear to his heart. A native of Charlestown, MA, John is a 2010 Graduate of Curry College in Milton, MA with a degree in Communication. At Curry, he was the Sports Director at the radio station and was the voice of Curry Football and Men’s Besketball along with having his own Sports show called “The Sports Corner”. His top three favorite Celtic games of all-time were of course the 2008 NBA championship game 6 win over the Lakers to win banner number 17. Also the greatest comeback in NBA playoff history in game 3 of the 2002 Eastern Confrence Finals, and every game Paul Pierce has hit a buzzer beater in his carrer. John is looking forward to blogging and having great arguments and disscusions with the greatest sports fans in the world, in the greatest city in the world. BOSTON!
