Alexander Frank, Staff Writer

My homestead may be on the East Coast, but my home is the Midwest. I like my football played with fingers in the dirt, and my hockey played on a frozen pond. I care about sport and people, but especially people of sport. Feel free to drop a line!

Marcus Gatto, Staff Writer

Proud Dallas Stars fan living in the Great White North for the past 15+ years. Seen this team reach the peaks of the 1999 Stanley Cup and fall to the valley of losing game 82 against the Minnesota Wild to miss the playoffs. Offer an opinion, backed with fact. Only the good stuff really.

About FanSided

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.
