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.

Although Demetri Inembolidis is a graduate of the Ohio State University, he is not the most avid of collegiate sports fans. That does not mean that he won't be found tailgating before a big Buckeyes game.

Demetri's passion is the NBA. His favorite team is the Cleveland Cavaliers, but he has been known to pay close attention to the entire league. Although Demetri has been to a small handful of potential elimination games, he has never had the opportunity of seeing the Cavs win a playoff series in person. One might consider that divine intervention. Demetri presumes it is a result of bad luck.

When Demetri is not in his living room watching Cleveland sports, he can be found at the local watering hole or attempting to plan his wedding.

Demetri can also be found as a contributor on the website I GO HARD NOW

Gary Benz is a life long Cleveland-area resident.  He has suffered, along with the rest of us, through every bad play, player and team to grace the Cleveland sports scene.  He has spent more time and money than he cares to remember on Cleveland sports teams with nary a championship to show for it, save for the 1964 NFL Championship.  He hasn't yet given up hope, despite what people may say.  Gary is a journalist by degree but left that lucrative field years ago for a more pedestrian existence in the field of law and business.  He also writes for his own website, which can be accessed at  You can follow him on twitter as well.
