Matty, if you dont mind me asking, why or how did you become a life long skins fan?

Only Bennys call it the shore. If you live down here now it's the "Beach".

SB XVII got me hooked. Plus it helped that my parents ran a sports bar growing up so we had all the games every weekend.

If nothing else, they have good things to say about Matty.

Re: Football Fandom in the Internet Age: interview with MattyK!

Really nice read. I've also interacted with guys on here who, though I may never meet in person, I consider friends. Guys who had a kind word during some recent trying times. I'm not ashamed to say it....I love the WARPATH!!!

Don't know if this is appropriate or not, but was Joe Crisp beefing with the F.O.? He seemed like a pretty cool guy.

I don't think he had any problems with anyone here. I think he was more frustrated with the Redskins. Plus he had other things going, new job, first child. Best of luck to him wherever he is and whatever he's doing

They have the best Mock Draft on the web, anywhere! I don't frequent often, but find most posters extremely knowledgeable. I found Warpath first, and of course prefer it 5-1. I respect Akh from HR the most. He is beyond a doubt, the most intelectual guy you could ever find. His opinions seem to carry the most weight over there, and he can stuff ten cow-not-quite-men posters in his socks. His face offs with those cowgirl posters are epic! I've met a couple of the HR guys at a FEDEX tailgate.
