My First Impressions of Everyone here at The Liberty Line
They say first impressions matter the most, but you might wanna tell that to a few of the boys here at The Liberty Line. As you may or may not know, I’m Sylvana Kelleher and go to Temple University. I somehow was recruited to join TLL this past week. I was thrown into the group chat Thursday night by the lovely Drew Smith, and I already am regretting my decision of going this team. I’ll be getting into a bunch of different content here at TLL, but I figured I would start by giving my first impressions of every current member of TLL to kick things off. Might as well start with the worst and get to the best, right?
Let’s start with Ryan Conway and what he had to say about me last Friday in his not-so-popular “Weekend Rips” series that apparently he can’t even bring himself to do every Friday? If you even bothered reading that article, you may have noticed that Conway here thought that I didn’t realize his Twitter profile picture was John Kruk, and instead thought he was just a random 60 year-old man in the group chat. What Conway doesn’t know is that I am calculated and know how to create some good content. So no, Conway, I actually didn’t think you were John Kruk, I’m just two steps ahead of you and creating good content.
Then, out of spite, I just had to ratio Conway, as he takes my #1 pick for least liked in the group chat. Also, if you clicked the Twitter link above, you’d see that Conway already changed his profile picture to himself. I’m already calling the shots here and this is literally my first article. Imagine.
Next up we got Steven Conrad Jr. Me and Steve were actually in the same section for the Sixers’ home opener on Friday, but he refused to come say hi to me. I guess he was scared of me, which I honestly don’t blame him. If you check out my Instagram, you can see that I’m extremely intimidating and shouldn’t be approached in public.
After talking up his game and saying he would buy me a drink, he failed to do so and it is now “on sight” for when me and Steven cross paths. I will give him credit for finding me at the beautiful Xfinity Live and being the first TLL member I met.
Still bottom tier though.
Steve and Justin Bradley (who apparently everyone calls J-Brad?) have to follow each other. After unfortunate events at Xfinity Live, Justin here decides to flirt with my roommate and ask for her Snapchat. Another not good first impression. Respect the hustle though, maybe share with Steve how to have some game (not like he stands a chance).
I’m still waiting for my drink.
Next up would have to be The Liberty Yell’s Chris Stumpo, who everyone calls Stumps. This kid might have been the most brutal when I first joined. I can see now he fails with getting girls and that he must’ve just taken his frustrations out on me. Maybe he feels threatened with another girl here, who knows, but he probably should be.
Jack Connell. Jack was actually thrown out of the group chat by Vic for not knowing my first name. He instead called me Syl, which is my twitter name, god forbid. A little respect please Jack? Luckily, we were able to move on from our first incident but it’s clear he’s the punching bag of the TLL group chat. Apparently he started reading a thesaurus today to learn “new words” and make him a better writer? I would probably not do that and focus on how to introduce yourself to girls and maybe put down the book and get outside for a bit. After the name screw up, Jack was booted from the group chat for the night, which I kind of felt bad about, but not really.
Luke Arcani, this is strictly because our birthdays are close to each other and we both like Baker Mayfield. No issues yet, I am also being biased because we both are Aries. Not too much of a first impression, take that how you will, but you’ve made your way up the list.
Victor Williams, my boss I guess? Even though apparently he wants nothing to do with me and any content I create and I’m “Drew’s problem”. I don’t know who really is my boss here, sounds like it’s Drew Smith but Vic did throw out Jack for not knowing my name so that has earned him this spot. He texts like a passive aggressive parent who’s pissed off but won’t say why, always using periods and being grammatically correct. Hard to know what the man is really feeling or if he even likes being a part of The Liberty Line. Makes me question if he really wants to be 50% owner of TLL Sports LLC, but he has one hell of an Eagles following so he’s definitely doing something right.
Still, I don’t really like how he called me “basic” based on one Instagram story, so he’s still ranking lower than Drew on the list.
Alright, we have finally arrived at Drew Smith. He’s really only up here because he recruited me to join The Liberty Line and saw some talent in me and all of the amazing things I do on Twitter, which is basically just like his Tweets over the past few months. Honestly, I have no idea what took him so long to ask me to join TLL but we won’t hold that against him.
The first public announcement of me joining TLL was when he told Vic I was the new CEO, which was super nice while it lasted. Vic unfortunately shot that idea down minutes later so now I have to work my way back up to the top. Great. I also have to be nice to Drew since he sent me a bunch of shirts from The Liberty Line Shop. And no, if any of those cry baby 76ers fans are reading this, he didn’t send me the Ben Simmons clown shirt. Relax. Go cry into a pillow.
At the top of the pyramid is Jordyn Erard-Coupé aka Sporty Jordy. Everyone should’ve seen this coming. We are both south Jersey girls, Aries, and she was the only one to send an individual DM to me. Major props.
To everyone else, you’re safe. Really because no one else has even acknowledged the fact that I’m in the TLL Group Chat? They just text away and haven’t said a word to me (Danny Diemer, Matt Lucci, Leo Silverman). You’re safe, for now. As for James Birrane, I already knew him from Temple University and WHIP Sports so that should go without saying he’s in the clear.
In all seriousness, I’m stoked to be a part of The Liberty Line. Shoutout Drew Smith for having me join the team and let’s all be in misery reporting Philly sports together.
