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 "Sean The Bazz" on Patreon.

About FanSided

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.
