About the author
Obnoxious Boston Fan offers a fun, unique and biting perspective on the Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins, Patriots and whatever else people are talking about in the world of sports. We won't hold back, and neither should you.
Bill Speros is a life-long fan of Boston teams and a journalist who worked across three time zones before settling in warm and sunny Florida. His career in sports began just in time for the 1986 World Series. Thanks to technology and his 24/7 passion for Beantown, he's never far from Causeway Street, Yawkey Way or Patriot Place. Born in Cambridge back in the days of black-and-white TV, OBF grew up in Greater Boston and delivered the Globe and Herald American when he was a kid.
His inner Boston-fandom came to life on the radio in Central Florida and he was given this name by talk-show host and Orlando Sentinel columnist Mike Bianchi after voicing his support in defending all that is good in sports. His radio fame spread, and eventually, he was asked to fill this space.
Obnoxious Boston Fan was the "Open Mike" 2013 Caller of the Year on 740-AM in Orlando. He has made multiple media appearances and also answers to "Bill" or, if you're from anywhere in the original 617 or 413 area codes, "Billy."
