Born deep in the heart of the Amazon jungle and raised by a troupe of roving Ranchera music players, Andrés is a diehard Boston sports fans who celebrated the 2004 ALCS victory of Red Sox over the Yankees as the sun rose on the Mediterranean. His primary focus will be sports, but expect some pop culture and current event commentary from time to time. When not developing content for Ticket Liquidator, he can be found enjoying beer, baseball, disc golf and bull fighting. He once shot himself in the thumb with a B.B. gun in an attempt to discern if the gun was firing correctly. It was.

Dyana’s interests tend to include anything related to drawing, painting, photography, country music, a good movie or television show found on Netflix from time to time, and Boston sports (particularly the New England Patriots). Chances are, you’ll catch her ranting and raving about the Pats after an incredible win or a disappointing loss or writing a review about the newest country song she was singing along to in the car. Stay tuned to read about whatever random topics catch her attention!

Ian is a veteran of the Alien-Lizard Wars of the 1970s and 80s, and bears an ugly little scar on his left pinky toe as a constant reminder of his time in the CIA MK-Ultra Grey Killers Squadron. He writes for therapeutic reasons, covering such disparate topics as the 2012 Apocalypse, music, sports, comedy and general decline of homo sapiens sapiens as a species. He hasn’t wet the bed in ages.

Good luck meeting a bigger St. Louis Cardinals fan. One day in 1991, a four-year-old version of John Paul was annoyed at his older siblings for whatever reason (maybe they told him to eat his vegetables), and since they were Yankees fans, he decided he didn’t want to be a Yankees fan any longer. Instead, he opened The Hartford Courant and decided to root for that team that scored the most runs. The Cardinals beat the Giants by a lot, and the stubborn JP has been sticking with the Cardinals ever since. JP can also thank his siblings for his U2 fandom – he’s seen U2 live over 40 times. Besides the Cardinals and U2, JP enjoys the finer things in life – flag football, baseball simulation leagues, Taco Bell, and Mountain Dew. He fears only alligators, crocodiles, and brain aneurysms. Just don’t call him John.

Stacey considers herself one of those “creative types.” She always has some sort of project going, whether it’s a painting, a quilt, or an essay. Her greatest passion is writing. She has been blogging in some form or another since back when blogging was actually cool. You can count on her for articles tenuously related to theater, music, or pop culture, but will mostly consist of whatever randomness pops into her head.

Toni joined the Ticket Liquidator family when her fellow team members rescued her from a halfway house for recovering crazy cat ladies. She is probably best known for having discovered the insidious and deadly disease known as BHSS (Born to Have Servants Syndrome), thus giving sufferers everywhere a glimmer of hope that they are not simply a bunch of pathetic slobs. In her next incarnation, Toni has decided to sing like Aretha Franklin, cook like Paula Deen, travel like Anthony Bourdain, and look like Angelina Jolie, thus inevitably becoming the ruler of the universe.
