I am a very passionate baseball fan. I live in Salem, Oregon with my lovely wife and my two boys you see pictured with me at Safeco. I have been an aspiring sports writer for a decade, writing for various websites, newspapers and even starting my own monthly sports magazine (The Oregon Tailgater) which stayed afloat for almost two years.
Born and raised Seattlite in the neighborhood of Ballard. Attended St. Alphonsus middle school, Seattle Preparatory School for high school, and am currently a Junior at Boston College. If the Eagles are competing, I am rooting for them! I am a die-hard fan of all Seattle sports, but the Mariners always remain near and dear to my heart. Long Live the King!
I am a first-year student at the University of Virginia, originally from the northwest Chicago suburbs. While a myriad of sports from hockey to soccer interest me, baseball and the Mariners will always be king. At some point after graduation, I hope to move out to the Pacific Northwest.
I was an all-state corner back for my high school and i played college baseball for a small community college in Montana. I love baseball and love football and one day hope to get into coaching.
I am a 27 year old husband and father of four. Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. I currently reside in Arizona. I am a die hard Seahawk, Mariner, Trailblazer and Oregon Duck fan. I love camping, hiking, snowboarding, and spending time with my beautiful family. After 6 years of military service I have found my two passions, firefighting and sports writing. I look forward to providing insightful, opinionated, and biased Mariners news! Go Mariners!
JJ has been a sports fan for as long as he can remember. He began playing baseball when he was three for a team called The Griffey's, and loved it ever since. Once he stopped playing, he stayed involved through writing and analyzing stats, and as such the Mariners make up about 50% of his life. He is currently the longest tenured Staff Writer at SodoMojo.com, and also contributes to Fansided.com as an MLB columnist.
Russell has been a Seattle Mariners baseball fan since the glorious Kingdome days. Spending his summers indoors watching 'Junior' 'Gar' and the "Big Unit' would explain his obsession for concrete, turf, and Hall of Fame caliber players. Born and raised in Seattle, he has survived his fair share or rebuilding, winning, and rebuilding again. You can definitely say he is bleeding Mariner blue. Russell's live updates and Mariner GM tips can be found on Twitter @RussellHartness, and he can be reached via email 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.
