Hello Gentlemen! My name is Matt and I am new to the forum here. I am from a small town in WV about an hour from out capital. I am a history teacher at the middle school level. To tell a little about myself I am a sports nut! I play rugby for the local team near my home. I discovered the game as an adult and have been playing for 4 years now. I love watching the Cincinnati Reds and Bengals. I am a graduate of Marshall University and love our athletic teams, The Thundering Herd. I run roughly 10 miles a week and truly enjoy that as my "forget the world around me" activity. I have many other interests non sports related. I love playing music and can play the guitar and Mandolin. I am also a fedora lover. I collect new and vintage fedoras and really enjoy hunting for them in old antique stores. I really look forward to meeting some like minded people.

Welcome to the forum, Matthew.

Howdy.

Welcome!  I've always wanted to go to West Virginia, every time I see pictures of the place I'm amazed by how beautiful it is.

It is quite beautiful in most parts of the state. If you ever choose to visit send me a line and I can give you some places to go.

My sister and I were encouraged to reflect on the things that were truly important.Just a few of the things I am thankful for:My health. While I often joke that "I've I'd known I was going to live so long I'd have taken better care of myself" I am very thankful that I've made it to 52 and can still do anything I choose without worrying about my body. My wife's health. Over the past month I've…See More

"Steve, it all depends on your social circles. Even here in the USA, some people are into class distinctions. Even reverse discrimination where those working people look down on the wealthy."
