Cameron Black

Blind since birth, the world of sports was always just out of my reach, that is until I moved to Kansas City with my wife and met the Kansas City Chiefs. Through hours of instructional phone conversations and extremely detailed emails from the biggest football fan I know (my father) and the amazing and energetic play-by-play descriptions of the best commentator in the NFL Mitch Holthus, I became absolutely obsessed with both college and NFL football, but none more then my Kansas City Chiefs. When the Chiefs are not in season, I have dedicated my time to learning about baseball and basketball as well. Having grown up in the college football town of Norman, Oklahoma, I am no stranger to extreme sports fandom, and am honored to be sharing my unique take on sports with FanSided, from a point of view that only I have, that of a totally blind sports fan.

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.
