Thank you to all of our viewers out there—wherever you may be! With your support, on the evening of May 12, 2012, this blog reached another milestone— 40,000 views! When Sam Graves and I started this blog, it was our goal to reach as many people as possible to share our views on accessibility and baseball. I do believe we have accomplished that feat, since we are now getting viewers from many different countries! The “Two Men On” blog has had some great recognition—from Twins President Dave St. Peter, Access Press, and Metropolitan Center for Independent Living, among others.
Starting January 2010, Sam and I have had growing support. It only took a half a year for us to reach 10,000 views and by the end of 2010, this blog reached the 20,000 view mark. In July of 2011, our blog reached the mark of 30,000 views. Over the last two years, we have added a Facebook fan page and Twitter (follow “Michael_Sack” on Twitter to get new post notifications). We have been astonished and grateful on how this blog has been viewed by so many people from across the world.
As we move forward, Sam and I will be writing about the progress on the new Vikings stadium, advocating for accessibility for the newest attraction in downtown Minneapolis (in less than three years, the Dome will be gone forever!). We hope the new Vikings stadium will be equal to or more accessible than Target Field. After Governor Mark Dayton signed the bill on May 14 at the State Capitol, only the Minneapolis City Council and the NFL now need to sign off on the stadium (which both are expected to do).
Please keep commenting and giving us topic suggestions. Again, THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR SUPPORT!
