The earliest memory I have, and a story told often by my family, is my older brother teaching me to read using Cleveland Indians baseball cards. Cleveland area comedian John Caparulo once said that our cities sports miseries is what led to his career in comedy. I think those same miseries led to my career path. I have professional provided counseling services for the last 12 years in a variety of rolls, situations and programs. It will be with the combination of those two passions, Cleveland sports fan and professional counselor, that I will bring to you my point of view on our beloved teams.
I am from Canton, Ohio and I have loved football since I was born. My uncle made me into a huge Cleveland fan and took me to some of my favorite sports memories in my life. I went to Mount Union College with Pierre Garcon and Cecil Shorts and watched them win a national title. I love watching historic moments every summer during the Hall of Fame festivities. I love my Browns, Indians, Cavs and Buckeyes, and won't back down on an argument about them being the best.

Zac Snyder got hooked on the Detroit Lions after his dad took him to a Monday Night Football game against the Los Angeles Raiders in 1990. The show put on by Barry Sanders and Bo Jackson that night was only surpassed by what Zac could do with Barry in a game of Tecmo Super Bowl.
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!

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.
