Back in the saddle again

Banged up, but back home.

I really appreciated your best wishes, both in the comments and emails I received.  Group hug, everyone.

I was able to follow stuff during the week, so football posts will follow.

Going on the disabled list

It’s got nothing to do with the pinched nerve I mentioned last week, but I’m going in the hospital today for a surgical procedure.  I’ll probably have about a three-day stay there after which I’ll be sent home to recuperate, which should take about as long as I need to ditch the pain medication.  Obviously, I can’t say you’ll see much blogging production out of me for the next week or so, but I shall return.

Hey, it could be worse.  The surgery was originally scheduled for August 26th. And like weddings, you just don’t schedule major surgery in the fall in the South.  I will be at the opener, by Gawd.

What a drag it is getting old.

About four weeks ago, I pinched a nerve in my leg.  It hurt like hell but was clearing up… until I did something really stupid in my garage.  I woke up yesterday unable to get out of bed… took something that dampened the pain, but left me not in a blogging mood.

I’m a little better today, so we’ll see how far along I go.

Housekeeping thread

I’m headed to an out-of-town wedding today, so posting will be light… okay, near non-existent until Sunday evening.

Feel free to talk among yourselves until then.

Whatever blows your skirt up.

After looking at GTP‘s traffic numbers for the first quarter of this year, one thing’s obvious: changing defensive coordinators sure is good for business.  2013 was a record year for hits, but this year’s numbers are almost 400,000 ahead of last year at the same time.  It’s the offseason and traffic usually declines, so that’s a ridiculous bump.  It’s not like I’m doing anything differently (i.e., recruiting, which usually gets more attention than anything this time of year), either.

And it’s very similar to what I experienced in 2010, when Grantham was hired.  (From a percentage standpoint, the 2010 increase was bigger than 2014.)

I’ll give you guys credit for consistency.

A grateful blogger thanks you.

I’ve mentioned to you guys before that there’s a pretty predictable pattern to visitor traffic here.  February is typically the month when things drop off and stay that way until fall practice gears up.  And while there was a drop in hits last month from January, it was still by far the strongest February in the history of GTP – up almost 50% from the next best February.  (If that’s a gauge of everyone’s interest in the program, Richt and McGarity ought to be psyched.)

Even better, though, last month generated the most ad revenue I’ve ever earned.  And I just wanted to say how much I appreciate that.  I blog for fun, so in a sense, what I receive feels like found money (although I find it spends the same as any other type of green).  But it’s still nice.  So thanks for visiting and clicking.

Life intrudes.

Home internet access crash + trip to watch my old alma mater whip Tech in basketball = no posting today.

I’ll see if I can whip something up.  Don’t take it personally.
