Sunday, April 1, 2012 Is Five Years Old.

[Editor's Note: I had planned a 5th anniversary edition of the AverageBro™ Show to mark this occasion, but hey, life happens. Here's last year's anniversary post with a few time-sensitive updates. The blog will be back to normal soon. If you want it even sooner, answer the question at the bottom of this post.]

My, time does fly.

Five years ago today, the blog you're reading came to life with an innocuous and poorly-written piece about my favorite team in all of sports. In the time since, has opened a million and one doors for me. I've been able to do national radio shows, seen my work featured in national news papers, and of course, found a way to turn this into a profitable hustle. None of this would have been possible without you, the readers who essentially comprise the community better known as AverageNation™.

To commemorate the occasion, I'd like to share a handful of my favorite posts, in no particular order. Maybe you already saw these, if not, get familiar.
