Then: First joined the Hangout in 2007, but I was reading it a couple of years before then. I am not much into posting but enjoy reading about the O's daily. I was 15 when I found the hangout and had just moved to a new High School for my Junior and Senior year. I had never been to an Oriole game but my father who had grown up in Baltimore had taught to love them at a young age. I didn't have any way to watch them, so during summer nights when I was not playing ball myself I would go upstairs to the only place I could get signal in central PA with an old radio I found in my attic and would listen to WBAL to get my Orioles fix.
Now: I am now 24 and just as much of an Oriole fan. I went to college and earned my Electrical Engineering Degree but decided I wasn't ready to start that life yet so I commissioned into the Marine Corps. I'm currently stationed in Camp Lejeune, NC. I spent much of the last year in Europe, but am home now, finally, with my wife of 1 year. I'm currently enjoying life on the Beach when I am not training somewhere across this great country. I still prefer to listen to games during the summer evenings then watch.
