The Rabidness is Spreading (updated 08/01)
Categories: Announcements, Rabid Wolf ClubNo Comments »

The buzz sounding the upcoming football season as at an all-time high.  The same can be said for the Rabid Wolf Club.  Web traffic is up 1,115.79% 1,470.59% for the month of July.  I thought I would take a few minutes share a few site statistics with the group.

In the month of July, we had 231 267 unique visits
The average time a user spends on the site is nearly 9 minutes
The bounce rate is only 41% (people who don’t click internal links)
Traffic sources: 67% direct, 22% referring sites, 11% search engines
Top visitor countries are US, Brazil, India, and the UK
Top visitor US states are AR, TX, MS, and FL

We’ve made several improvements to the site during the last few months too.  Some of these include member/nonmember short scripts, pain train bio, ATF resurrection, twitter feed, and the visitor map.  Lets build on the momentum as we continue to violently engage all challenges.

Rabid Wolf Co-Athletes of the Month
Categories: Announcements, Rabid Wolf ClubNo Comments »

Congratulations to Kaily Nix and Taylor Zane, the Rabid Wolf Club Co-Athletes of the Month.  As most viewers know, the RWC is not an ELE (everybody love everybody) organization.  That is why we don’t have an athlete of the month every month.  In fact, we haven’t had one in almost 2 years.  That being said, Rabid Wolf pups Kaily “Serve” Nix and Taylor “Volley” Zane are so honored for their violent engagement of all opponents in the 6A East conference regular season and tournament, and 6A state tournament.   The JONESBORO High School doubles pair won their second individual state championship, and helped their team to a sixth straight state championship.   (Aside:  This proves that urban, inner-city school children can be successful without the benefit of going to a public/private, apple chasing, teach to the test, tractor driving, jug-band playing rich kids school)  The pair showed no mercy as they ran through the conference regular season, tournament, and state tournament without surrendering more than 2 games to any opponent in any set.   In fact, the Searcy team, after being dinged numerous times at the net by “Headhunter” Zane during the conference final, hardly ventured inside the baseline during the state final, prefering stay back and hit deep to “Run Everything Down” Nix, a strategy which also proved futile.  When asked what they were going to do to celebrate, the pair, (with apologies to Pimp Daddy) said that they were NOT going to Disneyworld, but were going to change their names to Kaily “Hot Shot” Nix and Taylor “Cool Block” Zane and prepare to transfer their aggression to the soccer pitch in the spring

Meeting Attendance
Categories: Announcements, Rabid Wolf Club1 Comment »

Something must be done about the abysmal attendence record of a number of members, including senior, executive committee members.  As far as I know, Brother Wyoming is the only excused member, as he is out of the country on sensitive official RWC business.  As we all know, Thursday is to be considered sacred.  (I think that it is mentioned in Genesis somewhere, but I digress.)  The last meeting was attended by a paltry 5 persons.  Flanders was even early.  It would have been six, but as usual, Carlos brought guests, and was shunned.

Important business needed to take place, people.  With the website getting more attention all of the time, we are getting numerous requests for membership.  And I, for one, am afraid that certain non-executive committee, non-upper echelon members, (not mentioning any names, McLovin) are feeling a bit uppity, and getting drunk on the power that comes with having a vote that counts 20%.  And at least those of us that ventured to Troy, know what happens when he gets drunk.  He has unilaterally named the last Athlete of the Month with no executive Committee input. 

There was actually talk of granting membership to some of these clearly unqualified applicants.  As far as your humble correspondent is concerned, we have quite enough unqualified members as it is.  Plus the football season is literally right around the corner.   Come on, people!  (Yes, that is an exclamation point.  I NEVER use exclamation points, but felt it necessary in this case.  I used it, and I am not ashamed.  I am not a girl either, since I used only one.)  Show up so that I am not the only mature, voice of reason at the meeting.  As we all know, with no season tickets to his name, and none on the horizon, Flanders, though quite mature, doesn’t count.  Someone told him there was a banana at his office and he left early anyway.

Flanders and Obama

Who knew Flanders was so connected (and emotional)?
