Born and raised die hard Bay Area sports fan. My first love is hockey and as such bleed black and teal, but I'm also a 9ers, Giants, and Warriors fan. I've always wanted to try sport writing, so when the opportunity arose I just dove right in!
I am interested in trends and making projections. Baseball is the sport I love, but I follow all of the major ones. I write for both Swingin' A's and Golden Gate Sports. Follow me on Twitter for snarky Bay Area coverage.
Ben is the proverbial fish out of water. He grew up a diehard Raiders fan in the shadow of the Colorado Rockies just outside Denver. His parents had him tested, but the doctors found nothing abnormal about rooting for far and away the greatest NFL franchise. Ben tries to express himself with words, though when watching games, he is frequently reduced to guttural moans and banshee wails. In his free time, Ben enjoys a wide variety of stuff and things. You can contact him at [email protected]

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.

Best co-founded the company in April 2007 with his brother, Adam Best. He also coined the name FanSided. He manages the growth of the network from a business and financial standpoint.
Blake has been consulting for FanSided since 2007 and has spearheaded the network's technical department since 2011.
Allen is VP, Content & Strategy for the FanSided. He has been with the network since 2009 when he was hired to be the editor Arrowhead Addict. He lives in Brooklyn, NY and is proud to be a tortured fan of the Kansas City Chiefs, Cleveland Browns, Cleveland Indians and Cleveland Cavaliers.
