Support independent sports journalism, and have some fun in the process as a Patron of The Open Man. 

The Open Man is my 100% independently owned and operated sports media venture, focusing on original reporting and story-telling, thoughtful commentary, and FUN -- because isn't the fun of sports what made us fans in the first place? 

Becoming a Patron directly supports original reporting like this; podcasts with personalities around sports; and so much more.

Get up close for moments such as these:

 

Your Patronage will go toward providing more coverage, improving equipment, and giving you the best in independent sports journalism.
