Happy Bithday Simpleprop.com! In November of 2001 you had your first post, followed by a second in December, but really hit your stride in 2002. Ah yes, those were the salad days. Before everyone had a “blog”, hell before the word “blog” was widely known. For us, we had a website, which was pretty damn cool. Anyone in the world could access

it, and they did. We got hits from all continents (well except Antartica, I don’t think they have a domaine do they? (they do: .aq)); we were especially popular with the military (a lot of .mil hits). I stopped tracking years ago, but we were trending the right direction: year: #reqs: #pages: —-: ——: ——: 2001 1335 202 2002 62359 8406 2003 321443 50335 2004 994109 255774 2005 1011084 246657 2006 1000354 288225 2007 1186667 455192 Our numbers are still surprisingly good, but I think much of that traffic is driven by robots (not those kind of robots, these kind) But that’s ok. Times have changed a lot since 2002. For example, everyone has a blog now. •Tumblr.com shows it has over 101.7 Million blogs with 44.6 Billion blog posts •WordPress.com has over 63 Million blogs •Livejournal reports to have 62.6 million blogs with •Weebly states it has over 12 million blogs •Blogster has over 582,754 blogs – See more at: http://snitchim.com/how-many-blogs-are-there/#sthash.zLhSwEyz.dpuf – 4/7/2013 There’s also been the rise of Facebook. If you’ve got a funny link you found, or something profound to say, are you going to post it on your blog and hope the three friends who follow your blog are going to notice it and comment? No. You are going to post it on Facebook for all of your friends to see. The only successful blogs

welcome back, eddie. mike lamb? we hardly knew ye. actually,
that’s not true. lamb hit a puny 233/276/322 in his brief 81-game tenure with the team, going from a potential power source and stable fixture at third base to a player who routinely was benched and only saw action when pinch-hitting late in games.

My first post about the Olympics dates back to 2002. At the time I was lamenting about the “X-ification” of the Winter Olympics. 12 years later my feelings haven’t changed.

After a surprising 10-6 season and a near record breaking year for Adrian Peterson the expectations for the Vikings are as high as they’ve been in some time. Will 2013 be a year where the Vikings take that next step, or will they regress?

I just did this in an e-mail to the other two yahoos on this site and it seemed like too much work to just lose in the ether.
+ Drafting and signing Rubio (eventually)
+ Hiring Adelman
+ Signing Ridnour
+ Signing Pek (although, to be fair, he was drafted by McHale)
+ Drafting Flynn (6th overall) seconds after drafting Rubio
+ Trading Lawson for a first rounder that became something called Luke Babbitt that became Martell Webster
+ Drafting Wes Johnson (4th overall)
+ Signing Ramon Sessions
+ Trading for and then re-signing Darko
+ F’ing up the two first-rounders they got for trading Al Jefferson (Donatas Motiejunas and Terrence Jones)
+ Waiving Chandler Parsons
+ Trading a second-round pick to POR to draft a guy who was too old to be drafted
+ Not giving Kevin Love a max contract deal
Not bad but not great:
+ Waiving Alonzo Gee
+ Trading Kosta Koufos
+ almost way overpaying for Nic Batum
Everything else is basically neutral.
