My name is Anthony Salom, and I am a Marketing graduate of the University of Texas at El Paso. I'm an all around sports nut, and a complete Miner Maniac. I don't consider myself to be a great writer, but its awesome to be able to express your views with others who have the same interests. Hope you all like the Rush, and Go Miners!
