I bet that Appalachian State fans could not get me into the top ten of WordPress when I wrote Who The Hell Are… The Appalachian State Mountaineers? If they pulled it off, I was to buy an App State shirt. Well, they had some help from Deadspin, but the volume of visitors who came from distinct URLs with appstate or some varietal thereof were impressive, and I think they earned the victory. I did get into the top ten (as high as #2 behind those damned addictive strange maps!), and I ordered the shirt the next day.
It arrived today, and it’s nice. Too bad it’s hovering beneath my face.
Note the Yosef-like beard.
App State fans are knowledgeable, and passionate, which is all one can ask from college fans. Here’s hoping you make the tournament and maybe go a few rounds deep! (Caveat: not at the expense of my Kansas Jayhawks. Our collective psyche cannot take another first-round exit this year.)
My apologies to those of you who were quite happy with me being an anonymous, faceless smartass.
