Grant Brisbee


Grant Brisbee has been the lead writer for McCovey Chronicles since 2005, when the San Francisco Giants-themed site became the second blog on the SB Nation network. He graduated from San Jose State University, where he was called "the next Kevin Frandsen" by absolutely no one. Grant is an avid fan of the 49ers, and he also likes the Warriors too, which used to garner more pity before 2010.
