Saying goodbye to 2008

It's been a big year here at Although the blog was created back in 2006, it really didn't get a full head of steam until March of this year. We've seen a lot in that time.

Kansas won the NCAA championship in a wild one. Tiger Woods did his usual thing at the US Open, defeating the suddenly popular Rocco Mediate. Michael Phelps won a record eight gold medals in Beijing and is still stretching out that 15 minutes. The Celtics won their 17th NBA title behind a "big three" of Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce. The Phillies won the division on the last day of the season - again - and went on to a World Series victory. The list goes on and on.

The blog also grew by leaps and bounds, incorporating new features like Six Picks for Sunday, Quick Pic, On the Tube, and Lookalikes. More recent additions were the morning link drop, aptly titled Dropping Links, and our NFL Power Rankings. And how could we forget the entries from guest bloggers Josh Garcia and Stu Millstein. We even got some love from Newsday's Bob Glauber, which was greatly appreciated.

So thank you for reading and here's wishing you a happy and healthy 2009. It's been a pleasure serving up the best in useless sports information and I look forward to more of the same in the coming year.
