Super Bowl 53 is in the books, and not only does that mark another ring for Brady & Bill, but for Bobby Kraft as well (talk about the killer B’s.) Does Edelman make the Hall of Fame? Do the Rams get back next year, or do the Bears/Saints dethrone them? The Patriots won a title, D-Rose could have if he never got hurt, and the Knicks…Well we all have a feeling where this is going.

Joshua Fisher, Alexander Tassopoulos, & Nicholas Tai Kreider
Joshua Fisher ain’t your average sports fanatic. Though a die-hard Boston sports fan, Josh is down to talk any team…anytime…anywhere. He started The Charity stripe in his bedroom, under his blankets, only in his underwear. Since then, with the help of his fellow Longhorn co-hosts (Nick and Tass) Josh hasn’t looked back since, or worn underwear. Josh is a sports statistics junky, labeled “NFL Draft” savant, and former high school class-clown. Through days of studying the game, researching history, and talking sports at any given moment, Josh’s game really is knowing yours.
Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, Alexander “Tass” Tassopoulos has been an avid sports fan and aficionado since he could walk. A decent athlete in his own right, Tass dabbled in basketball, lacrosse, and volleyball in high school and will constantly remind you that he “could’ve played college ball”. Known as the resident basketball expert, Tass brings much appreciated bounce to the three-headed monster that is the Charity Stripe. Just don’t bring up the 2011 NBA Championship around him or you’ll lose an hour listening to why “Dirk is the greatest, AND most loyal, player to ever walk the Earth”.
Nick “Nicky Snax” Kreider split time growing up in both San Diego and Georgetown, TX. As a three sport athlete in high school, Nick helped his football team get to the Texas state championship in Cowboy stadium. He doesn’t tell people, “I could’ve played in college” because he did play in college. In the fall of 2014, Nick walked on as a receiver to The University of Texas football team under coach Charlie Strong. His knowledge of the game comes from his days on the field and rooting for his Chargers. He is faithful to his San Diego Padres through and through each season, only to have his hopes and dreams crushed. Upon graduating with a degree in Advertising with a focus in sports media, Nick moved to LA to pursue a career in acting and sports talk. He gives a solid 7/10 on almost any impression you throw at him.
