From our inauspicious beginnings as a final project for a webpage design class, WaB has ascended into the ranks of the multi-billion dollar websites such as Yahoo!, Google and MSN. Alright, that may not be true, but I think we’ve improved ourselves over the last year. Let’s check out some of the highlights (and lowlights)
As I said, this was a final project that I had to do for a webpage design class. I really hadn’t planned on keeping up with it, mainly because I didn’t think anyone except maybe my mother would read it. Turns out, about 75,000 of you have read it. Or at least visited. Or my Mom clicked on this 75,000 times. Probably the last one, so thanks, Mom.
We saw Weller’s first mock draft within that first week. I think he puts up one every other day, but people enjoy them, so just get used to them. They’re not going anywhere.
Also that first week, we saw Weller’s Live Blog of the NFL draft. He figured he was going to sit and watch the entire thing anyway, so he might as well share his thoughts with the four people who read this at that point. We’ll be doing the same thing for this weekend’s draft, except both of us will be doing it. Please stop by and share your thoughts, we’d love to hear them.
Another thing we like to do here is go to live sporting events and share our experiences. (I like to do this anyway, Weller, not so much.) I figure everyone has a different sort of story when they attend a game and sometimes they’re fun to read about. The first one was a normal Royals-Blue Jays game and they’ve continued all the way up to the flat tire at the Blues playoff game, with many in between. We’ll get to some of the better ones in a minute.
Our first hotly debated post was one relating to a sport neither of us knows anything about. Horse Racing.
In May, I went on a trip where I saw 9 baseball games in 9 days. My Dad and I hit up four different stadiums and took in the local sights and more importantly, the local food establishments wherever we went. Until I got sick in Milwaukee, anyway.
In June, we had the Kiss-Cam Story. Always a good read.
July brought us first of the oddly popular posts on the Seattle Supersonics moving to Oklahoma City. It also brought us the longest posting drought of the year as we both went out of town for about two weeks.
We did our Fan Mock Draft in February, which went well for about three rounds and then we decided to try and go all seven, which was a bad idea. It was a whole lot of fun, though. We had a whole lot of people involved and I think everyone enjoyed it. Weller was also on TV.
March made Weller and baseball fan.
So there you have it. Some of the highlights of the past year. Thanks for reading, this obviously wouldn’t have continued if it wasn’t for you, faithful reader.
