Cary Heinz served for thirty-four years as a public-school educator until June of 2021. He is a life long baseball fan, and played the game in his youth with less than five tools.

I'm a husband and a father to four great kiddos. If I'm not working, spending time with the family, volunteering, or sleeping . . . then I'm consuming sports. I was born and raised a Chicago Cubs fan with my earliest memories of watching Sandberg, Dawson, and The Boys of Summer in 1989 winning the division.

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.

Whatever your goal, FanSided can help your voice be heard. If you are interested in writing for any of our sites, please be sure to check out our openings page and submit a proposal.


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.
