Turtle Soup is a blog and forum developed for Terrapin fans all over the world to commiserate about the successes and failings of our beloved Terps.
- Jeremy Gold: I was born in Baltimore, MD and I have two degrees from the University of Maryland. A BS in Finance and an MBA. My father and sister graduated from Maryland as did 90% of the significant friends in my life. It’s safe to say that being a Terp is in my blood. My career has taken me to Chicago where I currently reside. I still catch most of the Terp games although you will see me occasionally gripe about not being able to get the game in Big Ten country. I started Turtle Soup in 2004. I had just graduated with my MBA and was in the process of starting my career anew. While searching for a Terps blog or message board, I was unable to find one that didn’t charge a fee. So, I started one. Originally called “Herman Veal Chops” (named after a former Terp with a bit of a checkered past), Evan Brunell and the good folks at MVN found me and recruited me as a staff writer which continued until August 30, 2008 where Turtle Soup struck out on our own due to MVN closing its college sports coverage. I enjoy writing about my beloved Terps, but I am not a monolith. I also cheer for the Ravens, Orioles and Wizards. As for my day job, I work in online media for Advertising.com.
- Gregg Kanner: I am a sports producer for WJBK-TV in Detroit, Michigan, but was born and raised in Gaithersburg, Maryland. I’m a huge fan of all D.C. teams and graduated from the University of Maryland in 1997. I watch all the local D.C. teams play thanks to satellite receivers at work and the NBA and NHL packages at home. I watch Comcast Sportsnet Midatlantic nearly every day. I’m up on the teams!
