Trick or Treat

On this morning's WSCR-AM, The Score sports talk show, hosts Mike Mulligan and Brian Hanley asked for input on what the Cub players were handing out for Halloween as trick and treaters knocked on their door. Some of the obvious treats were:

Derrick Lee's house was handing out double plays

Carlos Zambrano was handing out Gatorade

Ted Lilly was giving out tickets to NLDS game #4

Jim Hendry was shoveling out donuts

The Cub infielders were passing out Butterfingers...

I know our readers can apple polish this bit up; I just ask to please hold the razor blades.

"navigator was handing out "How to be a jackass" books"

True. Your autobiography.


no seedlings for you until that attitude changes, sir!

Aha, except autobiographies are written by people about themselves. So now dave and navigator are the same person?? Those schizophrenic arguments must get really tiring at times.

So now dave and navigator are the same person??

Oh my... that would be scary.... i have no interest in being inside that head.

That doesn't preclude 'The Navigator' from buying up all the copies.

If it were his autobiography, it would be called 'The High Life with Howard Hughes' or something.

I am left out and offended. I will thus keep all the awesome for myself.


The Joe handed out John Howard Yoder playing cards (and you and I may be the only ones who get it).

is that mennonite humor?

you crazy cats...

Sweet! Now I feel important. He better keep his hands off of me, though.

DC used to hand out haikus.

Not for a few years now.

I remember we had haiku Wednesdays going for awhile last year....should bring that back. Unfortunately I'm terrible at them...any volunteers?

volunteer for what? you make a wednesday haiku thread and you'll know i'll rock some h-kus.

I need something for the post, the percentage of people that read the comments versus actual readers is actually quite small.

I think you mean 'the percentage of people that go to the main article' - I am sure that many of them don't read it. Not a dig, just saying that you go to a web page, glance it quickly to confirm that it doesn't have what you're looking for, then hit 'back' and try the next Google guess.

we get a pretty consistent traffic flow, about 50% are direct hits (people loading us up from their bookmarks or typing in the URL). While I certainly don't know the exact number that actually read every article in its entirety, I do know it's a lot more than the 15-50 people who regularly contribute to our comments. While there are certainly some comment lurkers that just read the comments and never post, it's still a small percentage of total overall readership...very small. And none of that even includes those who just read the RSS feed who currently don't get the comments at all.

I read a lot of blogs, a lot of websites (25-100 semi-regular basis), I read the comments on maybe 3 or 4 of them and contribute to about 2 of them. Now I'm not just basing my above assumption on that, it's also based on all the emails I get of people telling me to put all of Phil's and Dr. Hecht's info in posts instead of comments.
