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.
