Paparazzi Shoot Swans Hat in Bali

Posted by hanoiswans on June 1, 2007

Swans Blog Punches through 500 Hits

Posted by hanoiswans on June 1, 2007

Today, the Vietnam Swans Blog site punched through the 500 hits barrier. 300 of those hits have come in the past 8 days.

When asked by the International Association of Domestic Bloggers (IADB) to respond to this amazing feat, the Swans President explained that, “In the history of our blog site, reaching 500 is unprecedented. More to the point, it’s unheard of”. 

When asked to describe the feeling of reaching the 500 milestone, he added, “It’s a dream come true. It’s absolutely awwwwwwwesome”.

When asked about the challenge of achieving the next 500 hits, he said, “Bring it on!”

Was there anything else he wanted to add? “Nah, not really”.

With colourful quotes like these, the Vietnam Swans are really positioning themselves as a professional footy club.
