Vin graduated from college with a Business degree he doesn’t really use in his day-to-day job, so he figured, “Why not write in my downtime? Not like I have a degree in that either!”
Vin has been playing fantasy football for over half of his life. One of the first leagues he ever played in was a free league with strangers on CBS in 2006. He drafted LaDainian Tomlinson during his 28 TD season and from that moment on, he was hooked. Vin is a numbers “nerd” when it comes to fantasy football, compiling all types of stats from his longest-running league in a giant Excel workbook. He is an avid Yankees and Jets fan (weird combo, even weirder than his favorite food combo of lamb and tuna fish).
