ABOUT US: MEET THE STAFF
Tee’s Weekly Founder & CEO: Tee Kane
Tee founded the original print edition of Tee’s College Basketball Weekly in 1993 at the age of nine. In just two years, the publication became the single largest weekly college basketball periodical on the eastern shore of Maryland. Though wildly successful and profitable, the publication closed abruptly after an accounting scandal involving current Tee’s Weekly reporter Crazy Dee. Tee Kane holds a bachelor’s degree in sports journalism from The George Washington University and a master’s degree in pint chugging from University College Dublin in Ireland. He speaks fluently in 26 different Irish county dialects and currently writes the Tee’s Top 10 and Picks of the Week columns. Tee also oversees the generally misguided and intoxicated direction of the website.
Editor-in-Chief: Katharine Graham Kane
Katharine is the only member of Tee’s Weekly staff to pass a recent mental health competency test, which immediately ended all discussion of who should hold the position of Editor-in-Chief. Mrs. Kane, like so many great sports journalists, holds a degree in journalism from Syracuse University. Unfortunately while she was attending Syracuse, the men’s basketball team failed to win a single national championship. Of course, that would also be true of every graduating class before Katharine’s, going back to the school’s opening in 1870. She has executive authority of all Tee’s Weekly content. Katharine is known for editing with an iron fist and industrial-size red Sharpie, so the Syracuse comment will probably not make this bio.
Marketing Director and VP of Business Development and Corporate Strategy: Samee Kane
Samee came to Tee’s Weekly after several overpaid jobs in the Commonweath of Virginia’s corporate community. She currently oversees all aspects of Tee’s Weekly brand building, marketing, direct mail, media inquiries, YouTube selections, guest writer contracts, Gee Kane censorship, staff menu selection, targeted advertising, and marketing solutions to leading retail and consumer services companies. She also serves as the overall face of Tee’s Weekly. She has no experience in any of the above mentioned fields.
Director of Information Technology: Timee Kane
Timee Kane, in addition to being Director of Technology, is a true American Hero. He is an original member of the staff. Instead of stapling print shop copies together, he now writes highly technical software programs for the website. He holds a bachelor’s degree in geographic information technology from Salisbury University. His hobbies include golf, and he has worked tirelessly over the past 10 years to get his handicap down to just below 30. If you’re not a golfer and you’re wondering what that number means, it means he should immediately take two weeks off from the game, quit, and take up tennis. As Director of IT, Timee is responsible for all planning, design, layout, implementation, and troubleshooting of Teesweekly.com. He is married to the Editor–in-Chief and they were recently named to Forbes Magazine’s 2007 top 10 power couples in the United States.
Technical & Spiritual Advisor: Dr. Old School
Old School has nearly 50 years of coaching and teaching experience. He has been a mentor to the Tee’s Weekly staff since 1976. He is widely considered one of the top sports minds in the country. William F. May says about Dr. Old School, “Old School never jangles the verger’s keys of learning without opening the door.” On reading School’s inaugural “Behind-the-Back Pass to Yourself” column, Charles Curran said it was just another example of how School’s “clear-headed analysis draws on may sources—classical and modern; the author’s admirable ability to craft a seamless whole from disparate parts distinguishes this fine work.” Dr. Old School holds a doctorate in coaching philosophy from Georgetown University. He is a regular contributor to Tee’s Weekly and is also responsible for all conflict resolution among Tee’s Weekly staff.
Chief Investigative Reporter: Crazy Dee
Prior to his second stint as a reporter for Tee’s Weekly, Crazy Dee was a womb partner with Tee’s Weekly founder Tee Kane. He holds a bachelor’s degree in pub dancing from The Catholic University of America and is currently pursuing a master’s degree in coaching from Goucher College. He has taken full responsibility for his role in the accounting scandal in the ‘90s that led to the closing of the doors on the original Tee’s Weekly. Terms of the financial settlement that allowed him to return to Tee’s were made confidential by the Wicomico County circuit court. Crazy Dee is known for his unique view into the world of sports. He currently writes the “Where are They Now” column and holds the record for most times removed from his seat by the security of Madison Square Garden. At the age of 15 he posed as a reporter and sat in the first row of the press section in Madison Square Garden for both Big East Championship semifinal games. He is no longer allowed in the building.
Back Page Columnist: Gee Kane
Gee is currently a columnist for Tee's Weekly. He contributes the "Gee, I hadn't thought of it that way" column. He holds a bachelor's degree in English from The College of the Holy Cross and was a local playground basketball legend in Worcester, Massachusetts, and Yorkville, New York. He was briefly a national underground sensation when an amateur filmmaker captured him playing basketball by himself on the college racquetball court. For a few short months, it looked like he would become the next great white hope. Injuries, eating issues, and behavioral questions quickly sunk his playing career. Prior to joining the Tee's Weekly staff, he was in a semi-pro competitive eating league and was ranked third the ice cream division in 2007. Gee is known for his unique brand of fire journalism, which combines a tenuous commitment to the facts with an unflinching view of human nature.
Staff Sports Pscyhologist: Dr. Rachel Enakmas
Dr. Enakmas is a board-certified sports psychologist and studied in the same program as world famous sports psychologist Dr. Bob Rotella. She holds a bachelor’s degree in competitive running psychology from Loyola College and a doctorate in sports psychology from the Medical School of Virginia. She specializes in psychological tough love for competitive children and currently writes the “Ask the Doctor” column. Her license was suspended by the State of Maryland briefly in the early ‘90s for water-boarding three members of a Salisbury travel soccer team after a shootout loss in the Maryland Cup. She was an MVP State Champion in field hockey and track for James M. Bennett High School.
