Korked Bats

That Funny Sports Blog

Korked Bats’ 1st Birthday

It was one year ago today that recently retired KB author, Zach Osborne, and I decided to collaborate together and start a fun little sports blog. We both loved making people laugh and we both loved sports so we figured why not mix them together?

It’s kind of like the movie Twins.

Everybody loves Arnold Schwarzenegger. Everybody loves Danny DeVito. Why not put them together in the same movie?!

That’s what Zach and I did (or at least tried to do) in making people laugh while delivering them sports news/topics.

Little did we know that our little idea would grow so much in one year. We grew from just 2 guys to as many as 6 guys at one point with the possibility of adding more authors in our near future. In 2008, we put out a total of 23 posts. We have averaged 28 posts a month for the past 6 months. We have started a Facebook page, a Twitter page, and recently we have ventured off into the YouTube network. If you haven’t checked us out on any of those sites, you should. Everyone else is doing it! And peer pressure is fun!

Over this past year, we have literally had thousands of hits from all over the world. Some people love us, some people hate us. We hope for more of the first.

It’s been a fun year and hopefully this next one will only be better!

Not to mention we are so thankful that Tony Romo didn’t break up with us the day before our birthday in the parking lot of an IHOP.

We want to thank all of you who have shared Korked Bats with someone and helped spread the word. We can’t grow without your help. If you have any suggestions, ideas, or anyway to help make Korked Bats better and bigger, please don’t hesitate to contact us, whether you know us or not.

Once again, thank you for reading and we hope you continue to do so in year 2!

    Happy Birthday. That's exciting.
    If I could suggest a topic, I would say all of the reasons the Big 12 is better than the SEC. That would be good. Thanks.

    yea, that'd be just as good of an idea as writing a post about all the reasons mongolia is better than the u.s.
