RJ Ross, Staff Writer

My name is RJ Ross I attend California State University Long Beach and my major is journalism with a minor in communication studies. It previously was international studies, however I just felt as if that major no longer was compatible with my personality and goals. And what I really want to do is write and report; specifically concerning cultural and social topics along with sports. I just feel as if this plays better into my skill set.

He attended Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, CA and audited the film school at Chapman University. In addition to his adventure in film, he's a columnist at LA Sports Hub and LA Angels Insider.

Gary Mann, Sports Commentary and Local Reporting

I joined Fansided for two important reasons: (1): I enjoy participator sports. (2): I enjoy creative writing. My favorite sport is basketball, followed by football, track and field, sports-fishing and mountain biking. I have run more than a few marathons, biked thousands of miles and caught just about every type of game fish on the pacific coast. But you probably won't read much about any of that from here. Although I was never really good at hoops, I enjoy hoops talk. So as a long-time L. A. Clippers fan, yup. I'm on the bandwagon. Out there in the front rowww... By the way, whether you’ve read any of my posts or not, I need to state this disclaimer: 'Sometimes-I-am-a-confusing-ass-person-to-understand...' But after one or two reads, it starts to get clearer. I want to write about sports in a way that stimulates the sports intellect in my readers. I want my musings to be entertaining, provocative, challenging, and sometimes audacious. So feel free to read. Afterwards, (whether you liked it or not), feel free to comment, share it, tweet it, and/or retweet it. Enjoy the musings.

Mario Elizondo, Staff Writer

Chris Headrick, Editor

I am the Editorial Director for the Locals/Extra Division of the FanSided Network, an Atlanta Braves fanatic, huge Tennessee Vols fan, and just generally a sports hog. I brag that I am a 5th Degree Black Belt in Aikido with black belts in two other disciplines, but I'm mostly a teddy bear. When I'm not up to my ears working for FanSided, I spend time enjoying and home brewing craft beer, bow hunting, fishing, camping, riding my hog, playing guitar, and as much time as I can with my 8 year old daughter, Katie. She's a Braves and Vols fan too!

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.
