First, let me tell you we'll get Tom Coughlin in a little bit, so we'll have something as soon as we get back from practice. Looking today to make sure Eli Manning is out there and working as he expected to be Monday. Also looking for Mario Manningham, who had a chest contusion.
Now, for a little horn-blowing for myself and you guys. You may remember my old blog at my old newspaper. The most hits that ever received in one month numbered just a smidge over 30,000, and that was at the height of the Giants' 2007 Super Bowl run. It was in operation about two years by then.
Well, we've just exceeded that. In the first month of operation of Ernie Palladino's Giants Beat, we've gone well past the 30,000 mark. Not bad for this seat-of-the-pants operation. Now, I know the numbers themselves aren't overwhelming, especially when put up against more established bloggers like my friend Ed Valentine at Big Blue View and any of my blogging newspaper colleagues. But I'm very encouraged. And that means you guys have been coming through, for which I am eternally grateful.
Now the object is to increase the numbers. So tell your buddies to give us a look. Maybe they'll like what they see. And I'll do my part by putting together the best blog I can.
