Thanksgiving Site Notes
You'll notice some more obtrusive ads on the site for Dunning Toyota, as we've just sold some local advertising(!) for the first time. This is a temporary "site takeover" similar to what Gawker does that will run through Sunday. In the future these types of events will be rare—maybe a couple days a month if we can swing it—so we don't upset the balance between making the site a success and annoying the people who make it so. (This is you.)
Other site bits:
Holiday schedule: UFR the second tomorrow—it's the offense so no danger of throwing up turkey—and a couple other scattered posts but a relatively lighter schedule; full preview Friday as per usual.
Friendly fire: yesterday's post about the offense was hot on the heels of an in-depth diary that looked at a lot of different stats. One of those was points per drive, which I've seen bandied about many places by Rodriguez haterz as a reason the offense isn't actually two standard deviations above the mean. I took issue with that, but wasn't trying to bash blublooded, the author. The timing looks bad. So to be explicit: no offense was intended.
