About Us

About Us

If you clicked on this page you must want to learn “About Us,” so the first thing I’ll tell you to do is click away from this page and go read our site’s content. It’s the best way to learn what we are all about, by reading the passionate, knowledge-based articles that we produce daily. So go.

Now that you’ve read the hundreds of articles that we’ve put out, I can tell you a little bit about the site. As for history, no need to say much, just that the four us were mad that the Sixers had lost to the Celtics in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals so we ordered wings and started a sports blog. Just another night at the Israel’s.

To summarize who Niko Regalbuto, Tim Israel, Kevin Israel, and myself (Jesse Dougherty) are would be the best way to tell you about the site we created through our bond of sport. We are prototypical sports fans, who rely on just about everything sport for not just entertainment, but as a consistent outlet from our lives that would be simply bland regardless. We are idiosyncratic, obsessive, and meticulous as all true fans are, and before starting Stoop Sports had a clear vision of what we wanted in the media outlets that we follow religiously. From that, we created this website with the mantras that we have developed as utmost consumers of sports media, and what you see is a reflection of what we would want in the ideal sports site.

With that being said, we are forever adapting our content to fit both our own needs as fans and the needs of our viewers. As we grow, so does our loyal viewership and the demand for constant change, and we are extremely responsive to this since we know how impatient sports fans can be.

So put us on your favorites list, in your twitter feed, in your likes on Facebook, and tell your friends. If you love sports like we do or are a fan in any capacity, you won’t be disappointed.

Enjoy the site,

Jesse Dougherty
Stoop Sports Editor in Chief
