Sox On 35th is proud to have an extremely dedicated and passionate group of writers who love to use their knowledge of the Chicago White Sox to create engaging content for fans of all ages.
My interest in the White Sox started back in 2005 thanks to a combination of the postseason run and the name of my little league team. Before I knew it, I was a diehard fan despite being a lifelong resident of the East Coast. A 2020 graduate of Seton Hall University, I have the pleasure of running this site along with my great staff and the incredible support of the South Side faithful. Things are about to get really fun soon so sit back, relax, and strap it down with us.
My name is Jordan Lazowski, I’m a 2019 graduate from the University of Notre Dame with degrees in Applied Mathematics and Economics, and I’ve lived in the suburbs of Chicago all my life. I’m a lifelong lover of this team, 2018 #SoxMath 3rd Place Finisher, a firm believer in James McCann, and an endless Lucas Giolito supporter. I’ve been privileged to be a part of this incredible page since May 2017, and I look forward to bringing you more analytical, thought-provoking content for years to come. Time to ride with the boys from the South Side, make sure you’re on board.
My name is Brandon Anderson, but people know me as “Bson.” I’m the Creative Director for this amazing blog. On top of my graphic design, I also do some video work, and photography for our page. I’m currently the youngest person on our team’s roster, which I take great pride in. I like to think I’ve been a bright spot in the White Sox rebuild by giving people something visually pleasing to take their minds off of the on field product. I’m currently attending Columbia College Chicago in the south loop of, well, Chicago. I’m usually at games so don’t be afraid to say hello and share some baseball stories. And always, Go Sox!
My name is Jonnie Nonnie (yes, it rhymes) and I’ve been a contributor to Sox On 35th since summer 2017. I’m an Illinois alumnus and a die-hard sports fan. I’ve been a White Sox fan since the moment I was born thanks to my dad, my grandpa, and my uncles. When it became apparent my dream of playing baseball was just that, a dream, I turned my attention to sports media and never looked back. I live for sharing passion for my teams through stories and social media. Perhaps my greatest “claim to fame” in these circles started as an Instagram caption on my picture from Opening Day 2016 and has since become a hashtag, t-shirt, and general rallying cry for White Sox Nation – South Side Or Die. It embodies our commitment to our favorite team through thick and thin. Say it, tweet it, and wear it with pride. I’m a 40-game White Sox ticket holder, so you can catch me living and dying with the South Siders in Lot B and Section 149.
My name is Nik Gaur and I am an undergraduate student at the University of Chicago studying economics and history. I am also a lifelong White Sox fan from the western suburbs. I enjoy monitoring the minor league system, evaluating new metrics, and writing about the development of the team’s core pieces. The White Sox are about to get really good, and I am excited to continue to provide content on what is becoming such an entertaining team!
A lifelong White Sox fan growing up in Palatine, Illinois, I’ve been a writer about the South Siders and other sports teams for over three years now. Currently, I am an undergraduate at the University of Notre Dame studying computer science. There, my first-year Resident Assistant was coincidentally our own Jordan Lazowski. Like many others, my favorite player growing up was Paul Konerko, but now that honor belongs to the King of Swag, Tim Anderson.
In 2005, my family and I single-handedly won the All-Star Game Final Vote for Scott Podsednik by taking shifts voting on our only computer. In 2011, I saw Adam Dunn hit seven of his eleven home runs in person. In 2017, I put the naming rights of my future child into question when I bet a friend that Michael Kopech would win ten games in any season of his career. And in 2020, I became a writer for Sox On 35th. I can’t wait to bring high-quality content to a fan base I care about so deeply. Go Sox!
I am an undergrad at the University of Nebraska, double-majoring in Sports Media and Broadcasting. Born and raised in Chicago, I live on the North Side of the city, but have a mother from the South Side and a diehard Sox fan for a father. The first thing that drew me to the Sox was the pinwheels on the scoreboard, and going to SoxFest annually with my dad ignited the spark inside of me as a kid. Paul Konerko will forever be my favorite along with Carlton Fisk, but I currently hail to the King of Swag, Mr. TA7.
Lifelong White Sox fan and avid follower of all Chicago sports other than that team on the North Side.
I’ve been a Sox fan since I was a little kid. My dad always had the games on and that’s what really sparked my interest in baseball. In fact, I became so into baseball that I decided I wanted to make a career out of it. I recently graduated from Olivet Nazarene University with a degree in Sport Management and my dream job would be to either work for the White Sox or be a sports agent. I decided to start blogging about the Sox because of my passion for the team and my desire to share it with others.
I spent 19 years in Chicago. I moved out to Scottsdale, Arizona back in 2003, two years before our White Sox won the World Series. I guess you could say they were waiting for my family and I to head out of town. With that being said, I look forward to bringing you quality material covering our South Siders for many years to come. Life is good on the South Side again, and I’m here for it.
One time I threw my shoe at a lamp because of Shingo Takatsu. I’d say that qualifies me as a White Sox fan, but I’m also a lifelong Chicagoan – AKA, I’m from Naperville – who graduated with a Journalism degree from the University of Illinois. During my time in Champaign, I was a three-time NCAA All-American gymnast, so if you want to talk pommel horse AND baseball, I’m your man.
