Andy Frye

Andy Frye started his first sports blog in 2009, achieving the milestone of gaining eight readers, all of whom were friends from home he had begged to read his posts.

Since then he’s stepped it up a bit, writing for various publications about sports including, where he’s covered prep football, fistball, and roller derby, while also interviewing rock stars about their sports hankerings for ESPN Music.

In the mid ‘90s, Andy moved from Philadelphia to Chicago’s North Side, where he stays involved with the Windy City Rollers, while also skating with the Chicago Bruise Brothers as LeBron Shames.
