One-year Anniversary

One year ago, Alright Hamilton was introduced to the world. On May 5th, 2006, Mark Waters wrote about his feelings on the young Twins season. On that day, this blog started for no reason, with no particular audience, goals or focus. But one year and 230 posts later, Alright Hamilton has found it's niche is still a sporadic and hit-or-miss fun time blog.

In the early days of AH!, things were colorful, exciting a new. We had eight different authors in that first month. From a small community of friends and writers, AH began to get noticed elsewhere on the web. Most notably, TwinsGeek added us to the feed at MNgameday. Curt Schilling checked out our blog once.

Tomorrow we'll look at where we are and where we're going.
But today, let's take a look at where we've been.
Take a moment to glance over the archives. Share some of your favorite posts/memories.

Happy aniversary AH!

I don't remember when it was but Hudson's Cuban baseball story was pretty good.

Wow, one whole year. I remember first time Haasertime sent me the link to the blog. That was a great day.

My favorite posts were the ones that got commented on from anonymous randoms.

Here are a couple of my favorite.

Well, I can't really find anymore right now, but you guys remember them.

Also, I loved looking at old posts and seeing comments from people well after we stopped caring.

haha I feel bad because that was before I knew your dad read this on a daily basis haas. OH geez.

^the above is my favorite because that weekend was definitely in my top 5 weekends of all time.

Daymonts movie comparision gets honorable mention from me. My Facebook vs. Myspace blog post has to be the worst post in AH's! existence.

I would have to say that the completley rediculous article on Lyle Overby was my favorite. I dont remember exactly when it was and I havent had the time to track it down today but I will always remember that hillarious picture of him with the caption underneath that said something like "Me is the best Lyle." haha.

We should start bringing back some of the more random posts about offbeat subjects, like movies, bars, childhood TV or famous bald people throughout history.

Happy 1 year AH! whod a' thunk it?
