Weekend Anniversary Question

Hey kids, it's true, tomorrow this baseball blog is turning one. Our very first post was this oft-referenced Hall of Sandwiches post back in the halcyon days of January 2008 when the only folks reading the blog were me and Kris.

True story: when brainstorming names for this blog, I wanted to call it "The Clockless Game" while Kris wanted to think up a name with the word "Ghostrunner" in it. Well, Lloyd's place used that mantle much better, and we both agreed that "clockless" sounds too much like "cockless", so we were stuck for a name. We wrote stuff for a couple weeks without an actual website until Sally suggested we try something with the word "walkoff" in it; the domain name you've come to know and love was registered within minutes.

So on Monday we'll entertain y'all with some special anniversary posts, but until then, we have just one question this weekend:

  • HOW will you celebrate the one-year anniversary of Walkoff Walk tomorrow?

Back on Monday, same WoW place, same WoW time.

Lobster baby chowder for all!!!

bloggin's hard y'all

So looking through the archives, the first commenter that wasn't Kris or Rob was MondayMorningPunter. Interesting.

Who is baking the anniversary cakies? Did you guys get each other some watches, or did you go old-school?

This is my favorite line in the history of WoW:
From CTC in the AL Central predictions post:
God, they could score 1100 runs. I'm getting so hot. Sigh.

Was CTC talking about the combined offenses of the Kansas City Royals, Detroit Tigers, and Mrs. McGill's third grade tee-ball team?

Mrs McGills third grade Tee Ball team and Detroit Tigers are one and the same i assumed?

I'd like a special anniversary post by CHIPPER JONES.

I'm with the Colonel, and ones from Todd Jones and Andruw :( Jones

Happy berffday, WoWzas.

I'm going to watch the Super Bowl this weekend to celebrate WoW's anniversary.

Seriously, keep on rockin' in the free world, spring training is right around the corner.

You guys totally got the banner pic wrong. I fixed it.

That's the greatest thing I've ever seen, ever.

I'll celebrate the one-year event by shagging a woman in a lobster costume whilst wearing my WoW t-shirt.
And I'll film it.

Congrats guys.

Congrats on making it one year. Tomorrow I am already committed to a "date-night" with another couple, but the dude likes to black out so we are going to Monk's Kettle in the Mission. I'll have more belgian ales than you can possibly fathom in your honor.

Here's to many more years of EqA-based whimsy.

Impish Clooney!

Congrats fellows, it's a pleasure FIPing along with you

I have a job interview tomorrow morning, so I guess that means I gotta start drinking REAL early to sober up in time.

SO I GUESS SOME ASS SLAPS ARE DUE TO YOU ALL FOR MANAGING TO TYPE DUMB WORDS FOR A YEAR. HEY GUESS WHAT WE ALL DO GREAT THINGS EVERY DAY AND WE DONT RUN AROUND LIKE DOGS CHASING FLOCKS AND ASK FOR PRAISE. LIKE LAST YEAR I HIT 400 AND THEN THEY REWARDED ME BY TAKING AWAY SMOLTZY AND LETTING MADDUX RETIRE WITHOUT OFFERING HIM SO MUCH AS A DOLLAR. OH AND THE ECONOMICAL SITUATION IN OUR NATION MEANS THAT THEY CANCELLED THE FRONT OFFICE HUNTING TRIP WITCH IS ALWAYS MY TIME TO SHINE.

SO ANYWAYS I GUESS FOR A BUNCH OF HALF-GIRLS WHO LOOK AT DUMB STATS ALL DAY YOU GUYS ARENT HALF BAD. MATTTTTT_ THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT SEE YOU AT THE BALLPARK PLAY BALL!

I'm gonna stay totally wastedd.

Rock, roll, other stuff.

I'm up before all you. Hygiene.

This blog has lasted nearly as long as some Allman Brothers "Whipping Post" jams. Congrats!

Way to show Clooney who's Clooney, boys.

Happy birthday, WoW. I'll eat some Fudgie the Whale in your honor.

Fact: Fudgie the Whale has a 1.5 VORC (value over replacement cake).

Are we really still having this discussion?

I'M CLOONEY.

That's it. The End. I'm Clooney.

CTC, you need to go take a nap. We all know Darren is Clooney.

What happened to Kris' drugged out morning post? You can't hide that shit from Google Reader!

speaking of Kris doing things that are "drugged out," I'm gonna go make some coffee then come back here and transcribe a voice mail he left me a couple weeks ago.

You're all nuts.

It was just a user made video for the Traveling Wilburys song Congratulations. Nothing drugged out about it. I'm just trying to be more judicious with non baseball related overnight posts.

And Jiegel, that wasn't me it was your mother.

Weird, drugged out phone calls are much better when they come from a woman.

I am baking Cakies for my Super Bowl party. I have to say: I was lost but now am fucking found.

Thank you, Farthammer and WoW.

I am a failure, I bought beer instead of cakie mix. Self loathing, here I come.
