By Keith Myers
You can now enter to win the 2016 FanSided Sports Fan of the Year award. The winner wins a trip to New York for the SI Sportsman of the Year Event.
Have you ever painted your house in Seahawks colors? Perhaps you started a shuttle service to help fellow fans to the game safely? If the Seahawks are your life, than we want to hear from you.
Entries are open for the 2016 FanSided Sports Fan of the Year award. See the info below if you think that you or someone you know might qualify.
Are you, or someone you know, the biggest sports fan in the country?
If you can convince FanSided that you are the biggest sports fan in the country, we’ll send you and a guest to New York City to attend the annual Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year event and name you Sports Fan of the Year!
Imagine Lou Gehrig giving his farewell speech to a vacant Yankee Stadium or Michael Jordan hitting “The Shot” in front of empty seats. Without the fans, there is no roar, there is no electricity, there is no glory.
Last year, we decided it was finally time to recognize the nameless faces watching from the bleachers when we named Dennis Gleason the inaugural Sports Fan of the Year.
What qualifies someone to be the FanSided Sports Fan of the Year?
The FanSided Sports Fan of the Year is a person who exemplifies dedication, integrity and “Fansmanship” all for the love of the game.
What is “Fansmanship”? Just as athletes exhibit and strive for good sportsmanship, fans strive to exhibit good Fansmanship. Good Fansmanship means representing the teams you follow and the communities those teams represent in a positive way at all times thus perpetuating all that is good about sports and sports fandom. Every fan has a story. We want to hear yours.
Be sure to read the full contest rules as restrictions do apply. We can’t wait to start reading/viewing your submissions.

This humble analyst isn’t eligible due to my employment by FanSided. I’d still love to see a Seattle fan get this award anyways, so be sure to pass this along to anyone who might qualify.
