250,000 Visitors; THANK YOU!

I wanted to take a minute this morning to pause and just say thank you to all the viewers of the Sixty Minutes, No Alibis, No Regrets Wisconsin Hockey Blog. We reached a milestone today when we reached the 250,000 viewer mark in the history of our blog.

In my opinion that's a pretty impressive feat considering that we've only been running this thing for less than two years. 60 started this blog up in April of 2008, shortly after Wisconsin was eliminated from the NCAA tournament in an overtime game by North Dakota. 1,720 posts and 250,000 visitors later, here we are.

If you are curious where the name of our blog came from, here is an explanation from the creator in the first ever post on this site: For those of you who are less-than-familiar with the 1990 Championship Team, they had a motto that went a little bit like this: "60 Minutes. No Alibis. No Regrets." It was written on a sign, and the boys liked it, and I believe they carried the sign around on road trips. That's how I got the name of this blog. As the blog description states, this blog will talk about Badger recruits (future Badgers), current Badgers (duh!), and Badger alumni (forever Badgers).

So that's a quick background on the name and I just wanted to say thanks to 60 for keeping me around and also a BIG thanks to Gandalf and Exile and blockski as well. We're averaging over 1,100 visitors a day and I know that I'm pretty proud of that personally.

So again, thanks for stopping by everyone, as always if you have any comments, concerns, questions, or anything that you feel needs sharing, feel free to post a comment or send an e-mail to anyone of us. We're doing this out of our love for Badger hockey and not because of our generous $0 a year salaries.

Anyways, thanks again.

When you say Wisconsin, you've said it all!
