400 Caught!

Remember this game? It was a nice outing by Stults and completed a nifty sweep of the Reds. But little did we know at the time that the most significant thing about it was it would become the thread that wouldn't die. After the game ended at a mere 185 comments, the thread seemed to take on a life of its own. And it may have taken ten months, but it finally reached the arbitrarily-set-but-at-the-time-seemingly-far-fetched goal of 400 comments.

Here are some key stats:

  • Comments during game: 185
  • Comments after game: 222 (and counting)
  • Most consecutive days with at least one comment, excluding game day: 3 (achieved five times)
  • Most consecutive days without a comment: 52 (Jan 27 - Mar 19)
  • Number of different commenters: 7 (Karina 122; Orel 104; Sax 67; Karros 53; Erin 45; Quad 11; Loney Fan 3; Nostradamus 2)
  • Number of different avatars Karina used over the course of the thread: 10 (Gnome, with Fabi, Coper, showing bling, on field, fashion police, with Jesus Flores, wearing bandana, with Lastings Milledge, and Snoopy)

And finally, a graphical retrospective of the accomplishment, with some key comments along the way which may or may not be taken out of context:

I've never been prouder, especially knowing that I contributed more than 10% of the comments.

It's a team effort!

Seeing my name in the graph was exciting! Especially since I didn't have that many comments in this thread.
