The Best of SESB - One Year Anniversary

365 days, 170+ posts, and over 3,000 visitors...the blog is one year old today. It's a celebration!

While this blog is primarily read by personal friends, visitors from other specific blog sites, and the occassional opponent fanbase, it's also been touched on by several others during the 100 Best Vol Games feature, and, sadly, received 91 hits in one hour on Monday when I posted the Chris Benoit story. But regardless of the story, this blog has been a welcome friend in my first year here in Virginia, and I do appreciate those who read and take the time to listen to me ramble on.

On this one year anniversary, I've posted links to some of my favorite stories we've talked about over the last year. It's a real joy for me to write this...so thanks for reading.
