It’s our 11th birthday

200313459-001 Getty Images

Every November 1, this operation becomes one year older.  It used to be a bigger deal, in part because the prospect of surviving from one year to the next once was more tenuous than it is now.

Every November 1, I still take a minute to point out that, yes, it’s the anniversary of the launch of the site.  We’re now 11.

Five years from driving, seven years from voting, 10 years from drinking, we plan to keep rolling along for another 11 years, and hopefully many more.

Whether you found us 11 years ago or 11 hours ago, you’re always welcome here.  And you’re guaranteed to get your money’s worth.

    I don’t always agree with guys, but I’m really happy you are here. Happy anniversary.

    Congrats – and thanks for ALL that you do! PFT is the BEST.

    Well done, Mike. I’ve been a visitor for at least 9 or 10 years. It’s become my primary source for NFL news, especially at work. Odd to think I use NFL and ESPN only to supplement your stories. Keep it up.

    Happy Birthday fellow scorpio!

    Happy Birthday. You should post a link to the first ten days of the sight. I think that would be cool to see what the stories and rumors were eleven years ago along w/ the comments.
    Please do it if you can.

    To Tom and the PFT Team.

    Congratulations for 11 years and here is to 50 more years.

    I don’t think a day has gone by where I have not checked your website a dozen times a day, even during the offseason (ESPECIALLY during the offseason).

    Great articles, sprinkled with humor.

    Keep up the GREAT work!

    This is a great idea Mike, go retro! Couldn’t be any worse than those Steeler unis.

    Thanks to Mike and the team for making this site my de facto home page (even more important than my email) for the last two years.

    The prosperity of the Sheinhardt Wig Company should have you in business for many years to come.

  35. raiderapologist says: Nov 1, 2012 7:37 PM

    I’ve been hitting this site for at least 10 years. It’s hard to believe your writing hasn’t improved in all that time. Practice is overrated.

  36. ortonsneckbeard says: Nov 1, 2012 8:35 PM

    Well it’s my birthday too, yeah!
