What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
Yes, you read that right. Dubsism has just passed one million site views. I never would have imagined getting that much attention for what was really supposed to be just an outlet for my sports rants. Originally, I put those rants into a blog because I was pretty sure nobody wanted to hear them. After all, the very first post on this blog was four years ago when I still lived in Minnesota, and I just couldn’t take the ridiculousness of the day the Vikings signed Brett Favre.
Many of the early electronic screeds on Dubsism remained on that very topic; I took it upon myself to warn Viking fans that the Favre thing would never end well for them, and as much as they didn’t want to hear it, they now have no choice bu to admit I was right. It’s all there in electronic black and white. Since then, Dubsism has grown into much more than just reminding Minnesota of their inevitable football futility. Dubsism is the only place where you can get bizarre, yet incredibly relevant comparisons between sports and real life. Dubsism has also developed several other feature series, such as Signs We Are Near The End of Civilization, Teams/People Who Grind My Gears, and the Guest Columns, featuring such luminaries as legendary movie sports general manager Joe McGrath, television detective Jim Rockford, and King George VI. But the most important guest columnist on Dubsism has been Ryan Meehan, largely because it is the collaborations that I’ve done with him that led to the best blogging project I’ve had the pleasure to be involved with, Sports Blog Movement.
In any event, whether it is here on Dubsism or on SBM, it is humbling to know that there are people out there willing to take the time to read our work, and I thank you all for that.
Here’s looking forward to the next million…
