Rylie Smith,Site Expert
Rylie's first experience with sports was when she was 3 years old, as a tee-ball player and a dancer. Her life quickly began to revolve around sports, and it quickly became not only a passion as an athlete, but a passion as a spectator. During undergrad, she studied sport communications and became a multi-platform intern for NBC Sports Boston. She is most drawn to NHL and MLB, but is interested in all sports.
Write for Us
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.
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.
