Todd Welter,Site Expert

Raised in Johnsburg, IL. as a diehard Bears and White Sox fan. Moved to Wisconsin back in 2000 to attend Marquette University and stuck around after graduation. Covered the Brewers, Bucks, Packers, Wisconsin Badgers and Marquette for the Associated Press and 620WTMJ. Worked for the Miller Park (Now American Family Field) scoreboard crew from 2003-2014 so saw plenty of bad Brewers baseball and some good which led to falling in love with the Brewers. Passionate Blackhawks and Bucks fan.

Philip Charles VanDerHeyden IV lives and breathes Chicago Sports, especially the Chicago Bears and the Chicago Bulls. He is a former Purdue student who usually loves Purdue sports. However, he is currently on strike against Purdue Men's Basketball because Matt Painter is allergic to NCAA Tournament wins. Justin Fields is H1M. Zach LaVine is an underrated Chicago Bulls legend. When he's not serving his country as an Active Duty Soldier at Rock Island Arsenal during the day, he is contributing to @DaWindyCityFS at night. "This is my story."

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.
