I didn't sit there and hit refresh on Sitemeter for the last 10 minutes or anything ...
This afternoon, BC Interruption finally crossed the 1,000,000 visitors threshold at our new home here on SB Nation. It took us about 22 months to hit this milestone with our biggest month coming in March of this year, thanks to coverage of this year's NCAA Tournament Selection (lame!) and Boston College hockey's playoff run (also lame). Combined with the 126,887 visitors we got over at our old digs on Blogger, and we are well on our way the next mil.
Have really fond memories of our humble beginnings back in December 2007 when we were getting ~14 visitors a day, half of which were me hitting refresh in my web browser to make sure that the site was still there. Also, I realize that roughly a quarter million of these visits were probably from me, but still.
We personally want to thank all of our readers and commenters over the years for making this site what it is. This hobby wouldn't be nearly as enjoyable without all your comments and support. A special shout out to our newest Front Page contributors BCHysteria and Conrad Kaczmarek for all of their contributions to date.
We also want to thank all the bloggers and writers who have helped us along the way -- especially Eagle in Atlanta, Gobbler Country, Tomahawk Nation, Backing The Pack, Blogger So Dear, From The Rumble Seat, Testudo Times, and ACC Sports' Jim Young, to name a few. Oh, and our fearless SBN college network leader Peter Bean over at Burnt Orange Nation for giving us our start here.
Here's to the next million visitors, an ACC Football Championship, Donahue cutting down the nets in Greensboro and even more hockey hardware in the years to come.

PS -- Some interesting blog stats after the jump
PPS -- 1 mil BC Interruption party at Harry's Bar & Grille as we dispose of the "Play Like A Little Girl Today" sign. Like, for reals. Partay!
