Getting to Know Your Editors

Two two men responsible for The Out Route:


Tom Mantzouranis

Favorite Teams: New Jersey Devils, New Orleans Saints

Best Game Ever Attended: Devils vs. Mighty Ducks, Game 7 of the 2003 Stanley Cup Finals. The Devils won, 3-0, and were presented with the Stanley Cup. It doesn't matter that J.S. Giguere, a Duck, won the Conn Smythe for playoff MVP. Sports fans dream of seeing their team hoist a trophy in person, and that image is something I'll always remember.

Best Sports Memory: Lawrence Taylor breaking Joe Theisman's leg. Not only was this one of the most horrific things I've ever seen, but it ended Theisman's career early and sent him to the announce booth, where he's managed to ruin NFL games for me ever since.

T.O. or No? God no. No. No. No. No. NO.

Game I Wish I Was At: Disco Demolition Night.

Which ESPN Personality Are You? Tony Kornheiser, because I can do the penguin dance.

Kyle Decker

Favorite Teams: New York Mets, New Jersey Nets, St. Louis Rams, Maryland Terps

Best Game Ever Attended: NC State v. Maryland (at Maryland of course.) NC State had only one loss on the year and Maryland grinded out a win in that one which ended in rushing the field. Unfortunately, I couldn't go or get tickets to some of the best Maryland games that went down while I was there.

Best Sports Memory: The ACC tournament in 2004 when Maryland as a 6 seed beat the 3, 2, and 1 seeds to win it. They beat 3 Carolina teams in Carolina, where Maryland usually has a horrible time. The last game was an OT thriller against rival Duke. It helped that Maryland was a bubble team that needed some more wins to get in the tourney.

T.O. or No? No. He's a bastard that's too much for a team to handle. That being said he's going to do really well in Dallas and finish his career there.

Game In History I Wish I Was At: The Buckner Game.

You're an ESPN personality. Who? Scott Van Pelt. He too is a Maryland alumn. I wouldn't be as wild as Neil Everett when it comes to my announcing (he rocks, by the way) but a bit more low key.

When I'm Not Watching Sports On TV, I'm Watching: Seinfeld reruns.


Hey fella's, love the blog. You guys need to do a follow up on your Vick Suck's blog. I'm a fan of the ATL, but I'm tired of waiting for Vick to get it.

Thanks for the kind words, phoennix. We aim to please. We have covered Vick extensively in the past -- I'd like to direct you here, here, and here if you want more Vick vitriol.
