andrew-muschelAndrew Muschel, MS, is a fourth-year clinical psychology doctoral student at Long Island University Post. His research and clinical interests have included religion, addiction, technology, and trauma. He has presented research related to those topics at major psychology conferences in New York City, Los Angeles, and Honolulu.

Andrew recently decided to merge one of his primary hobbies, sports fanship, with his professional passion. After years of listening to radio talk show hosts offer every angle on the latest in sports, he considered providing the psychological perspective on all those stories. He has also become interested in general questions, for example why people are attracted to sports. On this blog, he attempts to address those questions and more.
