Hey everybody, my name is Matt Gaul and I'm going to be a new writer here at Over The Monster. I am 28 years old and I currently reside in Nova Scotia, Canada. I have a degree in Journalism from the University of Forida.
When I was down in Florida for Spring Training, some of the Red Sox Personnel at the games had noticed I had been at every Red Sox Spring Training Event and they had noticed me writing about the Sox. We started talking and I told them I was currently unemployed and looking for a job. They said that they knew of a newspaper in Florida that was looking for a Red Sox Beat Writer. The Head of the newspaper was originally from Boston and he said that he wanted members of Red Sox Nation in Florida to enjoy the perks of having a Beat Writer follow their favorite team. He offered me the job and I accepted. I also write on the Blue Jays for Bluebird Banter, the SB Nation Blue Jay Blog.
So now I'm writing for two blogs as well as a newspaper! Also, because the newspaper is based in Florida, I'm moving down there on April 5th. All my stuff is being sent down to my home in Florida now, except for my laptop, bed, and TV. I am very excited! But don't worry, I'll still be able to cover the Red Sox for Over The Monster just as much. The only down side is I'm going to be on the road constantly and staying up at all hours of the night to blog on two teams and write articles for the paper.
Well, that's all for now. Look for a post tomorrow dedicated to asking me any type of question, whether on the Red Sox or information on me!
