Jonathan Eig,Contributor

I know sports and I know movies. That's really about it. I write and teach film, and I write and talk sports. If anyone remembers Ken Levine, who wrote award-winning sitcoms while doing play-by-play for major league baseball teams -- well, he's kind of my idol. I'm a lifelong suburban Washngton, DC resident, so I also fancy myself a political expert. But let's not talk about that.

About FanSided

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.
