Garrett Ferguson,Contributor

A Baltimore Ravens fanatic from the sunny San Diego, CA. I grew up having a strong distaste for football because I never found it interesting, until Thanksgiving of 2011. Most of my family is full of San Francisco 49er fans and on Thanksgiving of 2011, the 49ers were playing which had my whole families attention. I was annoyed my family was so caught up in the game, so I decided to play devil's advocate by rooting for the other team. That other team happened to be the Baltimore Ravens and that's when my obsession began. Now, my whole life revolves around this team and the NFL as a whole. Whether it's listening to podcasts, reading articles, or watching NFL Network; I'm always learning and keeping up-to-date with the latest stories and rumors. After years of intense following, I have found myself well-versed in the football world and I hope to share my passion and knowledge with others.

Keith Runk,Contributor

I am a senior Mass Communication-Journalism student at Towson University and I care about the Ravens more than a healthy minded individual should. Combine those two things and that's why I'm here.

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.
