Before tonight’s game, I wanted to thank everyone for coming by Sunday for the last HDLR of the year and, more importantly, the last HDLR of Yankee Stadium. It was a blast, and helped set a one-day record of visits here at The Heartland of 964 individual hits after 7 p.m. CDT. Combined with the 359 hits from 7 p.m. Saturday to Sunday at 7 (when the tracker set to Greenwich Median switches), there were 1,323 individual hits on the site, nearly all of which were on Sunday which blew me away. For all its limitations, this site’s strenghts emanate mainly from the various readers who are good enough to come by and share great ideas and insights. The Heartland simply wouldn’t be what it is without you all, and I am deeply indebted to you for that.
