Sportatorium: Happy Birthday To ... Us!

I'm like you, I didn't know if this thing would make it two weeks. But, whatdya know, all the sudden it's been two years.

Seems like just yesterday we launched this lil' corner of the blogosphere. After 730 days, 1,370 items and more than 20,500 comments we've survived to our second birthday. Congrats. Couldn't have done it without you guys. Duh.

Consider this the annual physical. Unless I'm reading you wrong, seems things are operating as intended. I write. You comment. I start arguments. You finish 'em. Y'all pick on each other. I mention one word about my moonlighting gig over at 105.3 The Fan and you guys go Armageddon on my ass. Right?

In general you have an insatiable appetite for the Cowboys, Top 10 lists, hot chicks, radio ramblings and anyone with "Scott" in his handle. What are you sick of? What do you want to see more of? Are you tired of being asked for your input?

It is, remember, a buffet as much as a sports blog. I don't expect you to love everything I place under the sneeze guard. Eat what you like. Leave the rest. It's cool.

Unless otherwise instructed I'll continue to post the details of my ghosts, my squirrels, my dates and, of course, my thoughts on all things sports.

Onward and upward into year three.

P.S. I've learned that anonymity is very empowering and a lot of you get a kick from busting my balls (and vice versa), but you wanna see someone who really hates this blog? Follow me ...
