He has contributed to Hoops Habit in the past and has been with the Clipperholics team since early 2018.

Jive Riggs,Contributor

Became a Falcons fan when I was younger, growing up in North Carolina it was pretty different, but I took the remarks from Panthers fans who swarmed the area, and multiple 'fans' of other teams, but I never once quit on my birds. I always enjoyed writing, rather it be poetry, or anything else..I always enjoyed reading as well. I began writing music at a young age more about telling stories than anything. Then came sports blogging and well, I found my calling, huh?

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.
