Countdown to 3 million

    Sometime in the next 24 hours -- probably even much sooner -- we will see the 3 millionth post in SportsJournalists.com history.

    Well, at least in this iteration of the board. There was a meltdown a few years ago which erased everything. The board returned and has been chugging along every since.

    So the big question is -- who will write the 3 millionth post? Here are the current odds:

    BYH 5:1 -- Come on, the most prolific poster in the site's history has to be the favorite. Speculative bettors have money on the post being about either the history of hair metal.

    ijag 7:1

    dooley 8:1

    The Big Ragu 15:1 -- Most likely will be writing a 500-word post, which causes it to be the 3,000,002nd post by the time he's done.

    Moddy 18:1

    jr 20:1 -- but the favorite among Candian posters.

    D_B 35:1 -- the favorite for the 3,000,001st post.

    Ilmago 500:1 -- Might come back to rank SJ's best 1 million posts in the site's 3 millionth post.

    Let the countdown begin!!

    BTW, this is the 2,999,110th post in SportsJournalists.com history.

    Where does the 3 million number come from? Just curious.

    No way I am 15:1. I am not even among the top 30 in number of posts, I don't think. And my posts average 1,000 words, not 500.
