Check out our counter (go ahead, scroll down, we'll wait)...

By now you've noticed that we're within 500 hits of the big 50,000 on our little blog. We're honored after just under 18 months to be hitting 50,000, especially considering our blogging peer and mentor over at ZiggyBackRide is yet to hit 20,000. Through our first 49,500 hits, we've had the following people visiting our site:
  • 48,000 -- Jeff and Abram reloading
  • 1,000 -- Random Deadspin jerks
  • 500 -- JBrater
  • 300 -- Various members of the Orlansky family
  • 199 -- Various friends (A couple Bens, a Laz, Scottie, Greg, Barry, etc.)
  • 1 -- Sam Lee
  • 0 -- Various members of the Asher family

The only question remaining is -- who will be the 50,000th visitor? Will it be you? The winner will receive a free autograph from both authors on your 2008 The Eyes of Texas preview book (you buy the book, we'll sign it for free). So subscribe to the site or keep checking back regularly, because anyone can win.

I don't know why we have to call the Deadspin clicker-throughers "jerks..."

as one of the aforementioned visitors to the site, i feel obliged to point out that you tagged this post with a label of "500000" which is roughly (and i'm no mathematician) a bazillion jillion more people than have acutally been here.

keep it up.

Ok, the amateurism is one of the less attractive features of the site. Anything else?

I just talked to Sam Lee. He wants to put down $500 on himself and parlay it with the Cowboys tonight.

Your prize offer reminds me of Dominican Lou on "Weekend Update"

Thanks for the shout-out and congratulations on the 50000!

My head will probably explode with vanity when it's time for me to write that post at ZiggyBackRide!

Hook 'em!
