On this date four years ago, a biology professor that was hiding from his students during office hours on opening day of the baseball season, started a blog. That Professor had little idea what he was doing as is clearly evident in his first-ever post, a post that included a Jonny Gomes home run.

But he started to find his stride later that day when he wrote about a journalist that predicted the Devil Rays to win the World Series…in 2006! That post got a lot of play on the interwebs, and there was no looking back from what was originally intended to be a practice run for a Bucs blog.

So, Happy Birthday to us!

    Thanks for all you do, Cork. I really appreciate the quality of your posts -- you are funny, insightful, informative. No other Rays site holds my interest nearly as much, which is why I blame you for my lack of productivity on slow work days.
