Possibly Related Posts

October 22, 2008

I have had a bit of free time lately, and I’ve been checking out the automatically generated “Possibly related posts” that WordPress provides at the end of most blog entries.  Sometimes, I have no idea how they could even be remotely generated, sometimes they link to my own posts (inevitably, this means I will get excited because someone thinks just like me, and then disappointed when I hover over the hyperlink and see my own address), sometimes they are for the actor Josh Hamilton, and sometimes (the really good times), Word Press digs up a gem.  Often its an old gem that I overlooked, but better late than never.

This one is from the All-Star break, when seemingly everyone had something to say about Josh Hamilton.  His Home Run Derby performance was epic.  His revelation that he had dreamed about it happening this was just added another layer to the story he’s been writing all season.  What I found today was a post called “Why Kids Love Josh Hamilton” at a Red Sox themed blog called “Crawdaddy Cove.”  Great name for a post, and great name for a blog.  Check out the post for yourself, because the authour tells his son’s story in a way I would just not be able to convey.  I can agree with sitting watching the Home Run Derby, awestruck at what I was seeing, and trying to get in touch with some friends to make them turn on their TVs.

I like checking my ‘Blog Stats’ page to see how people are stumbling across my blog.  I have lots of google searches (I must be right up there for ‘Josh Hamilton Tatto’ searches, as I get variations on that quite often), lots of other baseball card blogs, and a few message boards where I have the link in my signature.  More interesting to me are the readers who find my blog by clicking on some of the tags I have on the blog.  My favorite is when someone clicks on the “I swear to God I’ll pistol whip the next person who says shenanigans”.  To my knowledge, mine is the only blog entry with that tag, so they just get looped back here, but I am happy to know that there is at least one other Super Troopers fan watching this blog.  I hope you are as excited for the prequel as I am.
