It turns out it is a lot more difficult than I thought. I failed. In fact, I failed miserably. The amount of traffic I drew to my site was more like the crowd at a girls JV basketball game than a WNBA game.
To quote the self-deprecating Tony Romo: I suck.
...but then again I didn't have David Stern and the NBA machine backing my effort.
I did however learn some valuable lessons from this experience:
1. The blogosphere doesn't like gimmicks as much as the fans of the LA Angels of Anaheim do.
I could have wrote a blog entry entitled "I'm pathetic, read my blog" and gotten the same result.
2. Friday afternoon at 4:00 might not be the best time to try to draw a record amount of traffic to your site.
3. Respect from other bloggers is very important
I just hope that this stunt didn't tarnish Stanley Cup of Chowder's reputation or damage any of the beneficial relationships I have formed with other bloggers in my short time as a member of the blogging community.
I have a new found respect for the WNBA. I will never make fun of the WNBA on this blog again (OK, that's a lie).
Some day I will be able to outdraw the WNBA, just not today. Watch out WNBA, I've got next!
