Like a lot of people, I am still fixated on the sports teams I followed in my youth. I grew up in Kansas City and naturally became a fan of the Chiefs and Royals. Of course, that means I haven't seen a playoff win in 20 years. Here's to breaking the drought in 2014!
I'm a KC kid born and raised. I'm currently an editor for KcKingdom and student of mass communications and journalism in Baton Rouge, LA. One day, I'd like to see one of my teams (Chiefs, Royals, Mizzou) win a championship but, I'll start with just a playoff win first.
I'm a graduate from the University of Central Missouri with a major in Broadcast Media and a minor in Public Relations. Go Mules and Jennies! Music, radio, sports, and writing are my biggest passions. ~Chiefs, Saints, Royals, Huskers, Sporting KC~
I grew up on a farm near Hutchison, Ks, and I graduated from KU with a degree in History. I live in Lawrence with my wife and son, and I am a passionate fan of the Jayhawks, Royals, and Chiefs, through good times and bad. I love sports, history, books, music, movies, and TV. I work as Senior Director - Sports for FanSided.
From Atlanta, Georgia and is currently going to school at Kansas State University. Before transferring to K-State went to Barton County Community College in Great Bend, KS to run track; graduated in 2010. Just recently graduated from Kansas State in December. Bachelors of Science with a minor in Mass Communications.
Chad is from Parkville, MO. He is a sophomore at the University of Missouri studying Sports Journalism. In between classes and sports writing, he likes to play Madden, work out, and watch ESPN. So basically, you could say his life revolves around sports.
I'm a KCK native, and have grown up bleeding Royal blue. I was fortunate enough to see the 1985 World Series, and idolize George Brett as a kid. Stuck w/ baseball through high school and college. Played four years at Ottawa University, and at one time held the career strikeout record...except I wasn't a pitcher. #hallofshame ? Not a stat geek, but believe advanced stats can be useful. For the most part, though, they don't tell me anything that I can't determine by watching a player, or by those boring old stats on the back of baseball cards (Do they still put stats on the back of baseball cards?) Thanks for reading.
Here is a picture of me at a Royals game. My dad is on the right. I'm studying Math and English at Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa. Interestingly, Morningside was where Paul Splittorff went to school.
Lucky to be living in such a great sports town. I'm just a Missouri kid who was raised to become a Mizzou guy. At some point, the Tigers will win a national championship in football or basketball, right? Right?!
Born in Denver (Go Broncos), grew up in Osage City, KS, graduated from the University of Kansas (Go Jayhawks) and lived in Kansas City (Go Royals) before relocating to Philadelphia, PA (Go... Flyers, I guess?). That is the path to follow (with a couple stops in Afghanistan along the way) if you want to find an East Coast architect that is trying to convince his coworkers that the Big 12, AFC West, and AL Central are what they should really be watching.
Hi all! I am a recently retired military officer now exploring "the afterlife". I grew up in Kansas City and attended the University of Missouri in Columbia (still can't believe they're in the SEC now). I'm a lifelong Royals and Chiefs fan and like any true Kansas City native, I love grillin' and playin' the Blues.
Born and raised in Kansas City and graduate of Kansas State. I have missed only three home K-State football games since 1993. I made sure to schedule my wedding for a weekend in which K-State had a bye. Also a huge Royals fan, which is obviously difficult. Married to a KU fan, which is challenging, but it makes life interesting.
I was born and raised in the KC area and have been a Chiefs, Royals, and K-State fan my whole life. I am more of a casual fan when it comes to K-State and the Royals, but I am a die hard Chiefs and Sporting Kansas City fan. I am active on Twitter especially live tweeting during games so give me a follow and join in on the fun.
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.
Our work is regularly featured on SI.com and Bleacher Report and many FanSided writers have gone on to work full-time in online media. FanSided hired over ten of its own writers in 2013 and there are currently FanSided alums working at other major media outlets and with professional sports teams.
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 a network of over 290 fan-powered unique sports and entertainment 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.
