Rachel Arbeit is an opinionated and privileged child and granddaughter of New York Giants season ticket holders. Her grandfather got season tickets in 1938 as his high school graduation gift and her father had his own pair for over twenty years, until PSLs came to town and ruined everything that is good and right. Rachel accredits many important life lessons to Giants Stadium which include, but are not limited to: knowledge and proper usage of all curse words, how to smoke a cigar, dressing for tundra-like weather, strategies for dunking cookies into hot chocolate and best ways to heckle the fans of the other team.
Born and raised in Westchester, New York, Rachel graduated from Northeastern in Boston before moving to NYC to surround herself with sports fans she could tolerate. She is also a Yankee fan who still wonders how old El Duque really is and who trained him to kick so high. Rachel timed her semester abroad perfectly so she was as far from Boston as humanly possible when they won the World Series in 2004.
One who enjoys miscellaneous facts, learning, and drinking, Rachel hosts Trivia Tryst Trivia games all over New York City. Her trivia nickname is Rachel “Rabies-Free Since ’83” Arbeit, and it’s true.
Rachel writes for National Lampoon and Player Press. She is also a stand up comedian in New York City.
