Hello everyone, I'm Brett Ramsey. I'm a big sports fan and an avid reader and writer. The St. Louis Cardinals have always been a passion of mine and hopefully my writing reflects that. Every side, and story, has more than one perspective. Thanks for reading.

Bill Dawson,Contributor

Bill Dawson is an ex-journalist from out west who rarely writes in the third person. He spent 23 years writing and editing at eight newspapers (job hopper!) in six states: Oregon, northern California, Alaska, Indiana, southern California, and Minnesota. Yes, northern and southern Cal are two different states — of mind, anyway. He wrote a whole bunch of baseball stories in the late 1990s before being sucked into feature writing. Bill’s also a movie nut and a book fiend who enjoys boring classics like The Brothers Karamazov (liar!) as well as crime fiction, spy novels, and true stories that teach him something. He currently resides just outside of Denver with his wife of 24 years and their 16-year-old daughter.

J.T. Buchheit,Contributor

J.T. Buchheit graduated with a journalism degree from Lindenwood University in May 2018. He worked as the copy editor on three schools’ newspapers from 2011 to 2018. In addition to his journalistic exploits, he also has a lot of experience onstage, with performances in 18 theatrical productions from grade school through high school and in community theater. He loves cheering on the Cardinals as well as copy-editing articles and anything else he can get his hands on.

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.
