Sterling Holmes,Contributor

I am a life-long Chiefs fan born and living in Kansas City. Some may say I bring good luck as when I moved to Philly, the Eagles won the Super Bowl and the first year I moved back to KC, the Chiefs won. I love good BBQ, good beer, and good play-action.

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.
