Happy Bloggiversary To.... Oh, Me!
Friday, October 19, 2007
After all the hoopla surrounding Torre's stand against the man (or men, now that there are two more Steinettes in the mix) this week I nearly forgot the significance of today's date: it has officially been two years since the inception of this blog, a project that was born out of a healthy mix of Yankees fanaticism and sheer boredom (sorry, old boss) and has evolved into... well, whatever the hell this is.

It's been quite a wild ride, these last 2 years. I've been the brunt of many a derogatory sexual slur (how "I like the Yankees" gets translated into "I'm a raging bitch and slut, likely a member of some godless terrorist sect and probably the ugliest person this side of Don Mossi" I still do not understand, but what the hell do I know? I am but a lowly peasant in your fancy internet world), but I've also been on the receiving end of some of the greatest and most fun email correspondences I've ever had, met and talked to fans (and not just of the Yanks!) all over the world, and been flattered by a few folks' strange and unfounded desires to feature the Yankees Chick over the airwaves and via the magic of online video. The blog has gone from a Blogspot-templated, poorly-written, half-assed outlet for my fandom that no one but myself and perhaps the YCS (Yankees Chick Sisters... there are 5) read in 2005 to... a poorly-designed, poorly-written site that a few more people seem to like. Not bad for 2 years!

To celebrate, I'd like to give one of my lovely friends - or foes (you're already here, you might as well play along too) - a bloggiversary present. As you may have noticed in my barely-coherent ramblings, I am a big fan of nicknames, both ones others made up (Melk-Man) and the dorkus malorkus things my brain churns out (Jobamania, etc etc). For the Yankees Chick Bloggiversary Contest Extravaganza, I think we need some more nicknames: make up a great nickname for a baseball player (past, present, future, as long as it's someone we've heard of), post it in the comments section, and the best one gets a Bronx is Burning DVD.

Just for fun, or if perhaps you are at work and in dire need of a time-waster, here's a quick-and-dirty sampling of what's been going on here at the Yankees Chick for the past 2 years.

    You have a great blog. Even as a Red Sox fan, I enjoy it very much (particularly your trashing of the extremely fragile Carl Pavano, who continues to steal money)! :-!

    Congrats Mo! Not poorly designed at all, and you know it. ;)

    The Bronx is Burning DVD sounds more like punishment than prize. I thought it was awful.

    Hey YC,
    Conratulations on your anniversary, and you have a great blog. Keep your good work!

    As for the nicknames, the funniest I heard when I was a kid was Steve Safe Sax.

    I'e only been following for a couple months, but I've loved every entry.

    You've got a great sense of humor, and so many bloggers seem to have none at all...

    Keep it up =D
