A Historic Milestone

On this day, in the year of our Lord 2008, the way the world viewed UGA sports changed forever.

A young man quit posting anonymously amongst the multitude of bloggers and came to realize the penis mightier.

This young man set out with nothing but his wit and a free Blogger account to sodomize the minds of UGA sports junkies.

One year, 43K+ views, and 3 sponsorships later, Blogging Pantsless is still going strong.

The posting has lightened up (mostly due the paying job getting in the way) but the glamour hasn't faded. I still remember it like it was yesterday, a young boy approached me at a UGA game and said...

"Hey mister, aren't you Mackie the guy who writes about Georgia football???"

"I sure am, little boy." I replied.

"Why are you giving away free candy and baseball cards from the back of this van?"

"...are your parents around?"

"HEY, WHAT ARE YOU DOING WEIRDO!?" his father yelled as he approached.

I slammed the back doors and peeled out of the parking lot, but I'll never forget the first time I was recognized in public by a fan of my work.

All thanks to you bums who keep coming back to read my thoughts and ramblings. Here's to another year!

If I can make it out of this week alive we might get my LSU predictions in the books...but seriously I've got my back against the wall to meet Thursday deadlines. Keep reading folks, if I'm gonna do this full-time I need the hits.

Happy Birthday!

Believe it or not, this blog gets the thanks/blame for my own blog's existence. You took a comment I made on one of your posts (I think it was about mascots) and blew it out into a full-blown post on Blogging Pantsless (giving me proper credit, of course).

Giddy with the rush of public recognition, I immediately started my own blog, where I am still clogging the blogosphere with my useless input almost a year later!

Congrats on the milestone...we need to get together sometime and celebrate, since we're both in the May-retta area!

Congrats, Mack. Your blog is worth every penny I pay to read it. Go South Cobb War Eagles (I guess?), and Go Dawgs.
