…who was drunk as a rule.

While my hand is recovering from Brian Feeney’s handshake – ouch – here’s quick trivia: If you’ve been one of the 3,500 daily visitors to Slugger who were afraid to ask, Mick has reminded the audience about the nomenclature of Slugger O’Toole, from the lyrics of the Irish Rover.

Now you know.

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.
