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.

Are you always looking for the next great show, movie, event on television and would like to see what other folks are recommending. Then this group is for you.
