Contributor

Born and raised in Kenya, Calvin once had a t-shirt that proclaimed the Buffalo Bills as Super Bowl XXV champions. Moving to Buffalo showed him a different truth, and converted him into a staunch believer of the Buffalo Curse. Calvin is also a lifelong fan of Everton and Juventus soccer clubs. When not writing for Sabres blog 'Die By The Blade', Everton blog 'Royal Blue Mersey' and occasionally for UB blog 'UB Bull Run', he can be found at his project engineer day job in Boston. DISCLAIMER: Calvin is cautiously optimistic and blindingly passionate about all his teams.
