Tyson Newman, Staff Writer

I've been a Jazz fan my entire life. Talking sports dominates the majority of my day. I work full time in the marketing department at ClientTrack. I love putting my thoughts and ideas out there for you to read even if you disagree with them.

Jared, Staff Writer

I've been a Jazz fan since I moved to Utah at the age of 7. I remember crying when we lost to the Sonics in 96, and the Bulls in 97 and 98. Basketball has always been my favorite sport. I'm fairly new to twitter and blogging. Tweet me (@gothedistance49) I love talking about the team and pretty much everything else!

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.
