Have a happy new year, HBT Nation

The wife and I are taking the kids to a party soon.  Really: a kid-friendly New Year’s Eve party with a couple other families. It runs from 6PM to 9PM and all the kids blow their noisemakers at 9.  I know it sounds lame to a lot of you, but we’ll still have fun. I mean, that pic to the right was taken ten minutes ago as Mrs. C. and I got ready, so things are going great already.

Anyway, I just wanted to thank you all for a great 2010 at HardballTalk.  This has easily been the best year of my professional life, and it obviously wouldn’t have been possible if you guys didn’t come-a-clickin’ every day.

Be safe tonight. See you in 2011.

    You too Craig.

    I’m not sure when the site was launched, but I’ve been reading since August or September. I was looking for a baseball site similar to PFT, and boom! This place shows up.

    I click on here several times a day, and it’s already made the off-season move faster than most off-seasons. Now 2011 can officially be “This Season”

    Sounds like fun, Craig. We’re doing Disney Channel’s New Year’s Eve with the kids. Woo Hoo!! Rock On!!
    Have a safe and fantastic New Year.

    Happy New Year, Craig — we do the family new years’ parties, too — they’re awesome. Have fun, be safe, and thanks for a great year of baseball writing (and snark).

    “Be safe tonight.”

    Certainly, Craig.

    I’m being safe with my pitcher of rum.

    I gotta say, a good resolution for me would be to comment less. But Happy New Year to Craig, Drew, Aaron, Bob, anyone else I might have missed, and my fellow readers.

    Happy New Year Craig, thanks for a great season & off-season.

    Not so loud guys. It’s 11:05 here on the West Coast, Jan 1. My ears are ringing, my head hurts, my stomach is doing backflips. I just got up. Did I have a good time last night? I don’t remember.

    But happy New Year to the whole HBT community. Only 6 weeks until pitchers and catchers report.

    2:17 PM. groan Outside, small birds are squuezing foul yellow mutes from beneath their fanned tails. Coffee….

    My new years resolution is to start commenting on HBT…

      So far so good! Shit, I’m breaking MY resolution…
