Today, Sept. 13, 2011, is a special day for BallHyped.com.
As many of you know, we launched the site on Sept. 13, 2010 (we remember the date because we launched on the anniversary of Tupac Shakur's death). So while we celebrate our birthday today, let's also take a moment to celebrate the life of 2pac, who died 15 years ago today, and also remember all of those who we lost in the terror attacks 10 years ago this past weekend.
In fact, we'd rather you not recognize us at all, and celebrate one another instead. If not for our dedicated and passionate sports bloggers and fans, we would be nothing.
So rather than pat ourselves on the back, let's take a moment to honor all of the above, particularly the amazing Ballers who make BallHyped.com the community it is today.
Along with the video tribute to some of our top posters, we've also scraped the site for screenshots of our users who have uploaded their site addresses and URLs to their user profiles, as well as linked to those sites below.
Thanks again for getting Hyped this past year, and we look forward to bigger things in Year 2 ... pac.
P.S. Take a moment and promote the bloggers in our community by sharing this birthday tribute video on Twitter and Facebook:
