Slugger is ten years old today…

Love him or hate him (and I confess to feeling both emotions strongly)… It was ten years ago today (Alex Maskey as the first ever SF Lord Mayor of Belfast) that ole Slugger took his first faltering steps towards fame/infamy…

That was back in the day when the blogger software came without titles or indeed the capacity to comment… Those were both reverse engineered…

So thanks to all our bloggers, commenters and loyal readers for making Slugger what it is today… And if you are feeling suitably sentimental, you can always out a few quid in the donor button, to help keep her lit for another ten!!

Feel free to fire away with your best bits?
