    My Lions at #2!!! Who would have thought that story would make the top 10.

    Great idea for a top 10. I’m quite proud of some of my posts reading them back. But then, I’ve been drinking!

    Happy new year Gaffer and all at World Soccer Talk!

    Very interesting. In addition to writing the stray piece for this site, I’ve been writing for a multi-user comic book review site for the last ~5 years. It’s always fascinating to me to see what topics/articles are popular. Sometimes, the popular pieces are no-brainers: “OF COURSE! Reviews of The Walking Dead are popular because 15MM people watch each episode.”

    But, sometimes articles just take off for odd reasons. I reviewed an obscure graphic novel a few years ago called Marijuanaman that was written by Ziggy Marley. I think they sold about 20 copies of this book, but because my review got featured on several Marley family member websites, it got an explosive number of hits.

    You never know…..

    Anyhow, thanks for sharing. It’s kinda like a time capsule to look back at these items.

    I’m surprised a Gus Johnson appreciation thread didn’t make the top 10.
