Are you sure it was 10 years ago? It seems like yesterday

It was 10 years ago.
News of Kenneth Starr's Clinton-Lewinsky report filled the airwaves. Akili Smith and Reuben Droughns starred for MY BELOVED OREGON DUCKS and -- thanks to Steve Young -- the 49ERS were actually good.
Future ROUTE 1 editorial assistant KERSTIN was beginning 3-year-old preschool 10 years ago.
Arsenal had signed a new foreign player 10 years ago. Supporters called him FREDRIK LJUNGBERG then, he would become "Freddy" in no time.
Elsewhere, IOWA STATE beat IOWA, 27-9, a decade ago for the Cyclones' first win against the Hawkeyes in 16 years.
What was I doing a decade ago?
It was 10 years ago today that I began my current job as NEWSPAPER REPORTER at the TELEGRAPH HERALD in Dubuque, Iowa.
In some ways, it really does seem just like yesterday.

It was 10 years ago today that I said to the city editor, "We hired HIM?" Seriously, congratulations, Erik! You've helped the TH in so many ways! Take, for example, the current series. Nice work!
