In my free time, I enjoy sports. I play in a baseball league during the summer. We play about a 25 game season and the talent level is pretty solid. About a year ago I joined a weekly dodgeball league where I rediscovered the joy of launching balls at people. My fall Saturdays are spent watching UT football. I grew up a fan and have had season tickets for 10 years now. The last few years have been tough, but I'm optimistic about the future.
My other big interest/obsession is craft beer. I love trying new beers and have a phone app to keep track of it. If there's a contest to try as many different beers as possible, I'm in. A few years ago, my friends and I bought some brew equipment. The beer turned out pretty good, which led to buying more sophisticated equipment, and then automated equipment. For whatever flaws you may find in me, I can promise that if you date me, you will be well supplied with good beer.
I also like plenty of other stuff and am always open to trying new things. Hopefully you will have some fun interests of your own to share.

Food- Over the last few months I've focused on trying to eat healthy, but I still enjoy all my old favorites. I'm a big fan of BBQ, chicken fried steak, Mexican food, seafood. Really, if it is some sort of meat prepared in some sort of delicious way, I'm in. If you can manage to throw in some melted cheese with it, even better. I'll try just about any food once.
