2004: how was it for you…

2.5 shopping days to Christmas, and I’m blogging with one hand, rocking a cradle with the other and keeping two dogs at bay with my feet. Reading between the lines you’ll guess that I’m not going to be doing a lot of blogging over the next few days. I do hope to put together a few retrospective pieces, with highlights from the last four months. In the meantime tell us what your own high and low lights of the year have been?

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
