It's Article No. 50: Let's Get This Over With

Chase RuttigCorrespondent IJuly 23, 2009

Well, it has been 11 somewhat great months on the best Web site I have ever found, and I am at article No. 50.

I guess that's a big deal on this site, so I'll acknowledge it.

Trust me, 50 articles in a year is no big deal, and I despise the milestone articles on this site, but I want to get my one milestone article over with.

I have been through a lot in the past year, and I am proud to say that I am still writing and doing what I love on the best Web site in the world.

I have found many great writers on this site, and they have inspired me to improve my writing and look at things through a different perspective. They have also made me expand my horizons when it comes to sports.

I would like to thank every single member who has shown me an article, has read one of mine, or has edited any of my articles, because your work helps everyone on this site immensely.

I just wanted to take the time to thank everyone. I am getting back to work, and I hope by this time next year I will still be writing and at article No. 100.

And as I token of gratitude, I am going back to the archives and picking my favorite articles I have written. I hope you enjoy.
