Happy New Year all…

I’ve been keeping an eye on things through the holidays, but have also been enjoying the break. I hope most of our readers and ad hoc contributors have too. Thanks to all our bloggers, new and old, and to our commenters, and to those many more of you who read and sagely nod or shake your heads… For myself and my family we have a quiet night in planned. Whatever you plan to do tonight, I hope it goes well and that 2009 treats you kindly. Thanks for sticking with us (through thick and thin); and I hope you’ll enjoy some of the new ventures we have planned on Slugger in the new year. Night all…
