Quick Update

I'll do some Vikings-related stuff sometime later on tonight, provided I feel physically up to doing so.  There's something to be said for NOT doing PT outside when the heat index is approaching the triple digits, but there I was yesterday running 2.5 miles in it anyway.  Hopefully today won't be quite so bad.

However, I just wanted to take another moment to thank you all for what you bring to this site.  A few days ago, we passed two significant milestones in the history of the site.  Those milestones were a quarter of a million hits (we're currently at 251,955 since the site started almost two years ago) and 400,000 page views (currently sitting at 405,140).

During a time when traffic on many football sites is scarce, the past three months (March, April, and May of '08) have been the three biggest months in this site's history in terms of traffic.  To do a small comparison, the site has already received 4,167 hits and 7,349 page views in the first 4+ days of June '08. . .for the entire MONTH of June '07, the site got 5,048 hits and 7,178 page views.  We are definitely moving up in the world for football blogs.

Our comments sections are becoming more active, and our FanPosts and FanShots are becoming more frequent.  I would love to see both of these trends continue, and I can't WAIT to see what the beginning of the season. . .hell, the beginning of the PRE-season. . .is going to bring for us.

Keep it up, folks, and we'll see you back here later on this evening.
