Back on February 4, 2010, The Good Guys Sports Blog was born. We are creeping up on 1 year of talking Seattle sports, and for those who care to know how year 1 shaped up, here are some stats that wordpress provided for us. For the record, us 4 good guys have had a blast doing this, and this is not a farewell post. The band is still together! There is something quite satisfying about having a place where you can spew your sports opinions, and this blog allows us to communicate with each other, and anyone else who happens to stop by. Thanks to everyone who has happened across our site, taken a look around, and supported us.
The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:
The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.

2011 Seattle Mariners July 2010
I would also like to mention that aside from the Mariners and their 100 losses, this was a great year for Seattle sports. Husky basketball won the Pac-10 tournament and made another sweet 16 run, while UW football finished with 4 straight wins and won the Holiday Bowl. The Sounders made the playoffs for the 2nd straight year, and the fan support was once again the best in the MLS. The Seahawks are division champs, albeit at 7-9, and will host a playoff game next Saturday. The M’s sucked, but hey, 4 outta 5 ain’t bad.
Here’s to an even better 2011!
