About Itinerant Fan
I started this as a blog dedicated to the relentless pursuit of sporting event attendance. The way I see it, we all have our interests that we’re willing to spend irrational amounts of time and money on — for me, it’s sports travel. I love immersing myself in a city’s culture and traditions through its sports teams and stadiums, and I hope my experiences can be of help to you as you plan your own sporting itineraries and general travel plans.
Through this blog I aim to serve those who are curious about the greater world, faraway lands and different cultures. I believe it’s important to demonstrate what it’s like to seek out the unfamiliar and to inspire people to step outside their comfort zone and experience cultures different from their own.
This site serves partly as a living record of the venues I visit, a way to motivate myself to see more of the world through sports, and a chance to share my experiences and compare them to the other sports-traveling nuts out there who spend gobs of money just to watch athletes hit each other and/or send inanimate objects in motion.
When not traveling the world in search of a good game, I spend time on web and mobile projects as a developer, playing rec-league hockey and creating Simpsons memes. Previously I was a sportswriter, editor and digital media manager with previous experience at ESPN.com, The Sacramento Bee and the Wilmington (Delaware) News Journal. You can learn more about me at my portfolio site.
