What's going one everybody! I'm Sean and I'm a recent Rutgers graduate now going for my Masters in Legal Studies at Arizona State. I've played baseball my entire life and still do to this day. I love talking sports and predicting games, so hopefully I can offer some helpful insight into a field I believe I know a little something about. Personal site is "Resurgent Sports" on WordPress. Make sure you check that out as well. Thank you!

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  and .


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.
