My name is Bill Matz, I graduated with a degree in journalism from Temple University in May 2012. I grew up playing hockey (baseball and lacrosse, too) and when it became apparent to me that the NHL was not in my future I figured I could do the next best thing and become a sports writer.
I have followed the Flyers, Phillies and Eagles religiously since birth (my dad was/is the BIGGEST Buddy Ryan fan on the planet) and no matter what my devoted fanhood will always shape my perspective on those teams and their leagues. That said I try to stay as realistic as possible, at least in the articles I post to Bleacher Report.
In my spare time I intern at Sports Radio 94 WIP in Philly (listen at 2:30 & 4:20 am Tuesday mornings for my "People are Strange" and "3 Stars of the Week" segments), and write for Phillysportsnut.com.
Anything else you need to know is probably apparent in my writing.
Thanks for taking an interest in my bio and have a great day!

    How's it going Bill,

    My name is Dan Dubrow and I am the founder of a brand new Philadelphia Sports website www.talkin215sports.com and am curious if you would have any interest in writing about the Flyers on my site.

    To give you a brief history of me, I am also the founder of an all Philadelphia Eagles site www.bleedingeaglegreen.com which has rapidly grown to become on of the more premier sites to visit for Eagles news, rumors, and player interviews (site is currently down for SEO optimization.)

    I'd really like to talk to you further about the opportunity I have available. If you could please email me at dan@bleedingeaglegreen.com with your interest level i'd greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks Bill and I hope to hear from you soon!
