Andrew reminded me about this the other day, and I was going to get right on it until. . .well, you know. So, we're going with a mid-week edition of the Vegur so that we can get a compilation of all of the talk about the Brett Favre signing.
One little bit of bragging, though. . .prior to yesterday, our record for site hits in one day was just a shade over 9,000. That happened the day that we were all wearing out the F5 buttons on our keyboards looking for news about T.J. Houshmandzadeh. (Remember that guy? Yeah, neither do I. . .although if I did remember him, I'd probably wonder whether or not he was kicking himself right now, because he probably should be.) Yesterday, we hit that mark right around noon. Overall, the final tally for Farvegeddon yesterday was 22,658 visits and 40,778 page views, both of which completely obliterated the single-day records for the site. We're also well on pace to break our record for monthly visits and page views as well. So, another big thank you has to go out to all you readers out there and everybody else that found the site through whatever means they found it through.
And, with that, your Farvegeddon roundup from yesterday comes after the jump.
