Play at the Plate, that's who!
I'm setting aside my heartache over last nights Rangers' loss to the Rays and celebrating four years of blogging.
I'm sure those of you who have been around since I started are shocked that I'm still here. I started PATP as a way to thank the people who had traded with me on blind faith. I think I had around 50 trade packages that needed posting when I started.
Here we are, 4 years later. I'm a numbers guy so let's look at the numbers.
1804 posts, counting this one. A couple of them are actually worth reading I think.
Over 9100 comments (many asking me to stop posting such drivel).
Over 156,000 hits. That's just crazy. All those numbers are crazy. I just wanted to be around for a year or so, but it's just so much fun (most of the time).
Countless trades and a good deal of money contributed to the delinquency that is the United States Postal Service.
I've even held a contest or two along the way to repay the kindness shown to me by many in the community.
I can't think of a better way to celebrate the blog's 4th birthday than by having a contest.
Here's how to enter. From this time until I end the contest tomorrow, comment on as many posts as you want to from the past 4 years of PATP. Every comment is an entry. My only request is that the comment be a real comment, not just "In" or "In again" or something similar. Make it relevant to that post. I'll take all the comments, in the order they were made, and I'll randomly select two numbers. The comments that correspond with those two randomly selected numbers will each win a value pack of 2013 Topps Chrome and possibly an assortment of their favorite teams cards if I have some.
Thanks for coming along for the ride these last 4 years everyone. I really do appreciate every one of you who stops by and spends a few seconds of your day with me.
