About THIS TEAM IS RUINING MY LIFE (BUT I LOVE THEM): How do you turn ranting about hockey into a career? Steve “Dangle” Glynn is a YouTuber, podcaster, and sports personality from Toronto, who managed to turn a 16-second online rant about the Maple Leafs into a career in sports media. From video blogging in his parents’ house at 19 to yelling on televisions across Canada at 28, Dangle has been involved with some of the most important sports companies in the country.
In between tales of Steve’s adventures, both online and off, This Team Is Ruining My Life is also a kind of how-to (or how-not-to) guide: in an ever-evolving media landscape, sometimes you have to get creative to find the job you want. This is Steve Dangle and his accidentally on purpose journey through sports media so far.
Steve “Dangle” Glynn is a lifelong Leafs fan who began making YouTube videos about his favorite team when he was still a teen. Now he gets to work at Sportsnet for a living. (Still no Cup, though.) Steve and his wife have two wonderful dogs. They live together in the ’Shwa (Oshawa, Ontario).
