Happy New from everyone at the CCO!
Another year over and a new one just begun … it is hard to believe it is 2011. With the calendar turning over once again, it means a new baseball season is just around the corner. Here are a few numbers to put into perspective on just how close it is to the 2011 season … 13, 44, 57 and 90.
As in 13 days until the 26th Cubs Convention, 44 days until pitchers and catchers report to Fitch Park, 57 days until the Cubs’ Cactus League opener against the Oakland A’s at HoHoKam Park and 90 days before the first pitch of the 2011 season at Wrigley Field. While the play on the field was less than desirable, and worse than many predicted, for a majority of the 2010 campaign, it was a great year at the CCO. From the Cubs Convention to Spring Training to the daily grind of the season, we had a blast.
I tip my cap to all of the readers and commenters you guys fuel the site on a daily basis. The CCO set new highs in hits, unique visitors and return visitors on weekly and monthly basis throughout the year.
I send out my thanks to Brian, Brandon, Patrick, Shaun and Tom for all of your hard work and contributions to the site in 2010 … and to my buddy Jim that helps me keep the site online.
It is hard to believe, and I’m very thankful for the fact, the CCO enters its sixth calendar year today, with our seventh season of covering Cubs’ baseball just around the bend.
What’s in store for 2011? We will just have to wait and see … it’s too bad the Gray’s Sports Almanac expired in the year 2000.
For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
Happy New Year! I hope everyone has a happy, healthy and prosperous Two Thousand Eleven. It’s Time to Make It Happen … Eamus Catuli!
