Brett Finger, Editor

Brett Finger is the Editor for Cardiac Cane. You can get in touch with him via email ([email protected]) or twitter (@brettfinger). When Brett isn't trying to figure out how the Canes haven't made the playoffs in 5 seasons, he is probably wondering why the Atlanta Braves haven't won the World Series since '95. Also a big fan of everything NC State related.

Conor Patrick, Staff Writer

I never know what to say here, but here we go! My name is Conor. I'm 23-years-old, gay and proud. New Jersey born, North Carolina raised. I am a Carolina Hurricanes Full-Season Ticket Holder. Grand Opening Night, October 29, 1999 in Raleigh at the then Entertainment & Sports Arena was the day I fell in love with the Carolina Hurricanes and the game of hockey itself. I hope you enjoy what I have to share with you all. Thanks for stopping by!

About FanSided

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 a network of over 290 fan-powered unique sports and entertainment 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.
