Rob Schwarz, Jr.,Site Expert

I am a loving husband and proud father of three children. I have two boys and a baby girl on the way. I have been a Chicago Bears fan since I was in middle school and became a die-hard Bears fan while in high school. My father is a season-ticket holder and therefore I am lucky enough to attend multiple home games a year. I have been writing about fantasy football for about five years and shifted to a local focus on the Chicago Bears and other Chicago teams in January of 2019. In the Spring, I took on the role of a paid site contributor for Da Windy City; a local FanSided sports page. As of October, I am now working as a Site Co-Expert for Bear Goggles On; an NFL FanSided page dedicated to the Chicago Bears.

I have been writing about professional football for about 17 years now, mostyl about the Bears but also about other facets of the game. I am currently in the technology industry, full time, and really love my job. I enjoy the outdoors especially fishing, boating and hunting. I love my family and love the Chicago Bears. Being a fan of them since 1984 has given me some insight into how they play and perform. Exciting times are ahead for the Bears.

Born on the southwest side of Chicago, and now residing in the suburbs, I’m married to an incredible wife and have two amazing kids. My parents would host Bears parties throughout the season when I was young and that is where I began to develop my love for the Bears. I am excited to be part of the FanSided Bears Goggles On page to share my thoughts on the good, bad, and ugly of my beloved team.

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.
