One year, 160,000 words, lots of little stars and you

Rams Cake Like a Leprechaun rolled in sugar, let me keep this short and sweet: today marks one year since the launch of and my first post, and I want to say thank you to all the readers, commenters, star-voters, followers on Twitter (200+ and growing!) and Facebook (thanks, Mom!), other writers who’ve offered encouragement and criticism, and the fine and generous folks at FanBall who gave me the opportunity.

Speaking of FanBall, let me offer a special thanks to the Big Guy, Bryan Douglass, who keeps us all motivated and on point. One of these days we’ll emerge from our blogger caves and raise a beer to this crazy year. Until then, here’s a toast to the new year, and renewed hope for our teams.
