Umpbump turns one year old today and to celebrate we’re counting down our greatest hits. It’s been a wild year full of steroid rumors, unfortunate facial hair, hot baseball wives, Japanese imports, car crash cover-ups and way, way too many pink hats.

We’ve had a great time blogging about it all. And we’re looking forward to another great year. But for now, here it is, your “Year in Umpbump”:

Happy Birthday Umpbump!

As you all can see, we also redesigned the blog from the ground up. Well, actually, we took a WordPress theme (Earthling2) and modified it to fit our needs (and wants). Mainly, we wanted two right columns instead of one. We think it leads itself to better organizing of the links and such.

We also kept a contrasting color to that of the main column so as to not cause strain on the eyes.

A big group hug and a toast to all of those who made Umpbump a stunning success in its first year.
