I had been writing about professional football for over 17 years but am now getting into baseball and writing about my beloved Chicago White Sox. I have a deep interest in the Sox and love the history, the current team and the fans. Hopefully, my writing is able to give other fans of the Sox something to take interest in and look forward to. Thank you for reading!

Fan of good sports, food, cold beer and Springsteen music. I follow trends in sports media and am hoping for the SIU Salukis to make the NCAA basketball tournament again. Breaking Bad, Sopranos, SCTV and Seinfeld are the best one through four hitters in tv history.


We aren't called FanSided for nothing. Our network of sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites are powered by fans that want to cover their passions! Whether you are just looking to get your start in online media or you want to contribute to your favorite site as a hobby, FanSided wants to hear from you.

Whatever your goal, FanSided can help your voice be heard. If you are interested in writing for any of our sites, please be sure to check out our openings page and submit a proposal


The idea of FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn the creation of FanSided in 2009, a network of over 300+ fan-powered unique sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
