Jeffrey Bartl, founder and editor of CtA, was born and raised in Chicago, still lives in Chicago, and continues to be all about Chicago. It’s pretty gross, actually. When taking a break from his full-time writing job with STATS LLC, he’ll be here trying to make you laugh and even piss you off from time to time. He enjoys talking in the third person, and reliving everything about June 9, 2010 and the most wonderful 17 seconds of his life. He has a kick-ass story about Mario Lemieux when he attended Game 4 of the 1992 Stanley Cup Final at Chicago Stadium. If you’d like to hear it, or talk about anything else, email him at jeffrey.bartl@gmail.com

Jim Nakis was born in Chicago and grew up in Naperville. He played terrible hockey all his life until college. He somehow made it through four years of school at Northern Michigan University without assaulting any of the thousands of putrid Red Wings fans that surrounded him. He escaped the frozen tundra of the Upper Peninsula and returned to Chicago after graduation in 2007, just in time for the rookie season of Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews. A reformed meathead, he hopes to give you a chuckle from time to time and will provide news and analysis for our readers.

Chris Deme, currently on hiatus, grew up with hockey as far back as he can remember. When he was a youngster, his family lived in the suburbs of Hartford, CT, and him and his dad would regularly attend Whalers games. He remembers loving the combination of speed, grace, and aggression in the game. Chris moved to Chicago in 1995. His dad took him to the UC shortly thereafter, and seeing a Hawks game was like nothing he had experienced before. Chicago fans put the Hartford fans to shame. It was loud, it was exciting, it was love. Just before the Cup run began, he started joking about Joel Quenneville’s robust mustache with a friend.  This led him to create a “fake celebrity” fan page for Joel’s mustache on Facebook, mostly as an inside joke between him and his friend.  Without any effort from his end, the page took off and became littered with knowledgeable Hawks fans.  The page grew in popularity, until it was featured on the radio and on television, even mentioned by Coach Q himself.  Chris did his undergrad at the University of Illinois and right now, lives in Milwaukee where he’s in law school at Marquette University. Even though Chris is out of market, he still watch every Hawks game religiously. If you would like to get a hold of Chris, shoot him an email at christian.deme@gmail.com

Tim Currell, Contributor Emeritus gave his all to CheerTheAnthem.com, working with Jeff through the transition from our former home and the addition of Brandon, Jim and JesusMarianHossa. Long nights and early mornings did he slave over finding just the right insult to hurl at Detroit (*spitting noise*) fans in his game previews. But alas, a job change and a move to Portland, Oregon has cut his time with CtA short, and he is proud to pass the torch to such a knowledgeable and humorous crew. Let this be farewell, not goodbye. Good luck, happy reading, and GO BLACKHAWKS!
