Managing Editor

Andy has been a Sabres fan ever since Brett Hull's skate taught him how to properly use swear words, which should tell you everything you need to know about growing up in Buffalo. He now teaches in Western New York, and will always believe that Buffalo is one of the most underrated cities in America. Follow him on Twitter @andyboron.
