It seems that the New York Times has the perfect reporter to cover the newest New York Yankee. There's a story in the Times today (REG. REQ.) about Johnny Damon's having hacked off his famous long locks and full beard in deference to the sartorial law laid down by Yankee owner George Steinbrenner.
The byline is"Damon Hack."
My first thought was that it had to be a joke. Maybe a hacker had attacked the Times' web site?
But no, Mr. Hack has written almost 600 stories for the Times. So far.
Now he has a Yankee all his own to focus on.
