Shortly before 10:03 a.m. on Monday, June 30, 2008, someone at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in Alexandria, Virginia, performed a Google News search for "Knowshon Moreno" and clicked through to my lame attempt at comedy following MaconDawg’s revelation of the Georgia tailback’s disciplinary history.
In so doing, that reader (or, perhaps, that speed reader; Sitemeter says his visit length lasted zero seconds and one page view) became the 1,000,000th visitor to Dawg Sports.
MaconDawg and I hit the million-visitor mark on the final day of the first month since January 2008 in which we went over 50,000 visits and 75,000 page views in a calendar month. Accordingly, although it has been a rough week for Bulldog Nation as a whole, we at least had a little good news here at your friendly neighborhood weblog.
We thank you, one and all, for your readership and participation. For my part, I’m going to try to enjoy the moment while hoping that employees of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in Alexandria, Virginia, merely find their jobs boring and surf the internet during business hours, because I have to admit . . . my inner conspiracy theorist can’t help humming the chorus of "Pancho and Lefty" into my subconscious: "All the federales say they could have had him any day. They only let him go so long out of kindness, I suppose."
