Four more years! Four more years!

On this day 28 years ago I woke up with a hangover. I was 5 years old. As far as I can remember I wasn't drinking, but I was out all night. My dad brought me to South Philadelphia to watch the greatest sporting event in Philadelphia history. I don't remember all that much except that we drove down with his friend who had a van which he sold sirens out of, so he blared those sirens as we drove through the mayhem going on in Philly after the game. It was the coolest thing ever. Tonight the Phillies will hopefully start the series to repeat that mayhem and I couldn't be any more excited.

Also on this day in history, 4 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. 960 posts later and here I am. (plus 220+ posts on other blogs). Other things that last 4 years: High School, College, Presidental terms, ipods, 10% of marriages*, the average NFL career **, meat in a freezer***, and an artifical lung****. One thing that is unwaivering after 4 years is my love for you all. Many have come and gone and some have come back. Whether you've been reading for 4 years or 4 days I appreciate you more than you know. I get excited when I see a new post in my google reader, and I get even more excited when I see an increase in a comment count on my blog. I wouldn't still be doing this if it weren't for you. Thank you all.


* Just a guess
** maybe?
*** probably not
**** now I'm just making shit up

Sirens driving through town? Every five year olds dream!

We love you too Tim. It's been fun watching you go from a single guy to a married father of 2. Plus you make me laugh. You're a keeper.

Happy Blogaversary, Tim!

Although I think the Starburst porn has probably ruined your chances of running for elected office.

Happy Blogaversary!

Enjoy reading your blog. You crack me up. I have to say that the Starburst porn was my favorite. I had tears streaming down my cheeks!

Can't wait to read more.
