Steve Dangle’s incredible odyssey, from self-starting Leafs lover to sports-media star

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.

“Folks always say to me, ‘When Coach’s Corner is on, no one in our house is allowed to talk.’ I reply, ‘Neither am I.’ Now I find myself hushing my own household when Steve is on. Steve says he’s taken a page from us, but I know it’s novel. Enjoy.” — Ron MacLean, Coach’s Corner

“A wonderful look at the rickety ladder to success in sports media and how one can invent their own way of climbing it. Revel in Steve’s journey from irritated Leafs fan yelling into a webcam to irritated Leafs fan yelling into much more expensive cameras.” — Greg Wyshynski, senior NHL writer, ESPN

“A hilarious, inspiring account of how a kid who could barely skate managed to navigate a turbulent period in the Canadian media industry to become one of the most unique voices in our sport.” — Chris Johnston, senior hockey writer, Sportsnet

“It’s strange to call a 30-year-old a trailblazer, but that’s what Steve Dangle is. He carved his way into the broadcasting world by taking his own unique, loud, and crazy path.”— Ken Reid, bestselling author and co-anchor, Sportsnet Central

“Steve’s book, This Team Is Ruining My Life (But I Love Them), is so good, it registered on Canada’s nonfiction best-seller list before it was even released. A remarkable story of how if you love something enough and pour in the hours, you don’t need to “get hired” or “be employed” in order to start your path to success.” — Sportsnet
