Tennessee fan by birth. You can find me in Neyland, Cool Beans, or South Knoxville. I’ve won The Office trivia twice. I can talk about anything especially if there is a Wikipedia article about it.
Landon was born just minutes from Neyland Stadium in South Knoxville. Sports have always been a passion of his and he ended up playing football in college at Carson-Newman University (Never fell on a helmet) where he graduated with a degree in Marketing. Now, he spends his Saturdays during football season tailgating and cheering on the Vols. It is not easy being a Tennessee fan, but he never misses a football, basketball, or baseball game. He helped start More Important Issues in November of 2016 with his buddy Caleb. Go Vols!
