Hey...My name's Joel. I work in athletics, so clearly I like sports. But I also love to cook (although my talent there is in doubt), love politics, love being active, being goofy and having a good time. Boy Meets World is the greatest TV show ever created. I like to jetski and ski but don't get to do either nearly enough. If pasta was the only food left on this planet I would be okay with that. I'm a gym class hero. My favorite color is blue. I was once in a musical with Anne Hathaway, yes that Anne Hathaway. One day I will be on the Amazing Race. When kids are young and want to be a fireman when they grow up I wanted to be a clown - I think that explains a lot. My family has a one year old poodle named Bark. He's awesome and I miss him because he lives with my parents. I come from a family entirely made up of teachers (parents, sibling and some grandparents and cousins). Music is really big in my family - I played trumpet after I gave up on piano. Cookie Monster is the best Sesame Street character and Fozzie Bear is the best Muppet. Ferris Bueller is a great movie and always reminds me to say "9 times" very slowly. I like American Eagle and GAP. Everything Gavin DeGraw writes/sings is true. If I was on the Price is Right and got a showcase with a vaction I would not pass it to get the showcase with the car. I've yet to find a wrong way to eat a Reese's. I graduated from Syracuse and bleed Orange. I eat cereal and peanut butter like a boss. I'll wear sweats anywhere. I used to love Subway, however, Jimmy Johns has inched ahead in that book. Also, I kind of remind myself a lot of Schmidt from New Girl. My favorite infomercial is for the Magic Bullet. I like to run. I'm very talkative but I enjoy being a good listener. I'm a huge baseball fan and was very fortunate to work in pro baseball for several years.
