Happy Birthday to Us

By Ramzy Nasrallah on August 20, 2011 at 12:00a

Today is 11W's birthday.  Go ahead and guess our age.  Here are some clues:

Chimdi wore five


Spring Game Legend Taurian wore five too

The Future wears five

Mike D'Andrea wore five.  We couldn't find a picture of Everett Ross but he wore five as well.

If Michael Wiley weren't a blessed blur, you'd be able to see the five on his jersey

None of these guys wear/wore five, but there are five of them.

Eleven Warriors was conceived from the loins of Ohio's pride.  We've grown, survived and thrived only on account of your loyalty.  Five years for a sports blog - one that brings you new content multiple times every single day all year no less - is something like 642 in dog years. 

Keep challenging us, and we'll keep doing our best.  Happy birthday to 11W.  It's been five great years - here's to the next 642 of them.

Happy Birthday to the best Buckeye Blog.  I can't believe it's been 5 years...seems like I've been coming here for 20...like to an old friend's house.  Thank you very, very much for your humor and well considered opinion and exhaustive coverage; all without the absurd pomposity, insider/outsider cliquishness, politics, disturburbing sponsorship deals that have ruined some other pretty good sites.  Thanks again and many happy returns!

I found this site entering March Madness in Evan Turner's last year. It was one of my first experiences in the sport's blogosphere at it has remained the best experience since. As hard as it is to make Ohio State athletics any more enjoyable than they already are for me (incredibly enjoyable), you guys always manage to do so. So happy birthday, and cheers, Eleven Warriors.

Happy Birthday 11W!   I think I've been reading since at least 2008 and it's my first stop of the day.  Keep up the good work and the banhammer at the ready.

Beer's on me; high balls are on the giraffe!

Seriously, thanks to all of you for providing me countless hours of information and entertainment.

Long live the southend.

Happy Birthday. I have absolutely no idea how I found the site, but I’ve been visiting almost daily since some time during the 2006 season. And, while I’ve probably commented less than 10 times, I’m always happy to be here. Your posts and the comments make me feel like we have one of the more rational, intelligent fan bases around (you also always, but always, make me laugh). So while that’s perhaps not universally true, the community you’ve built here is comprised of just such fans, and it’s a great place to be. Keep up the fantastic work, and thank you for all that you’ve contributed to Buckeye Nation. Looking forward to much more.

There are a handful of sites that I check every day.  This is one.  Congrats and keep up the good work.
