Matt Maher: Reporter's profile
Hi, I'm Matt Maher, a reporter for the Halesowen News, and my blog focus will be on sport USA. From 90 yard punt returns, fumbles in the endzone, three pointers, walk-off homers, cheerleaders and hilarious commentary - nothing quite matches the razzmatazz, drama, excitement and sheer arrogance of American sports. NFL, NHL, NBA, NCAA, MLB or MLL (that’s Major League Lacrosse if you didn’t know) there’s no shortage of fun to be seen in the most overpaid and overhyped leagues in the world. And I love it all. Each week I’ll be giving my views on the big stories causing bar stool debates on the other side of the Atlantic. I’ll try and keep things light-hearted and humorous - though being an avid supporter of both the luckless Chicago Cubs and the woeful Cincinnati Bengals this shouldn’t be too much of a problem! It all kicks off with a trip to Wembley where the New Orleans Saints take on the San Diego Chargers in what has become a crucial game for both teams. Watch this space for an account of what should be a great day and hopefully a great game.
