Staff Writer

Matthew watched a baseball game back in 2001 and accidentally liked it. He cheers for the Yankees, his favorite pitch is the splitfinger fastball, and his favorite base is third. Other interests of his include cars, specifically those of German manufacture, and mass-produced pizza. Around these parts he's known for making GIFs.
