Damon Shaved For The Yankees! It’s Fashion Show Time!
Friday, December 23, 2005
Damon’s signing has been in the headlines for a few days now, so the official introduction today didn’t bear any news that we fans weren’t already privy to. The press conference did serve one purpose other than an official announcement of Damon’s arrival in the Bronx: fashion show!

Damon’s long locks and apparent razor-use ineptitude has been the talk of the town since his contract with the Yanks was announced earlier this week. Down in Boston, players are permitted to wear facial hair and long (lustrous!) hair, but in the Bronx things are taken a bit more seriously. The Yankee’s policy on personal appearance is very strict; players must keep their hair short and no facial hair under the lip is allowed (for some reason, the creepy porn-star mustache is encouraged). Before being allowed to don the pinstripes, Damon had to head to his stylist for a much-publicized Yankee-fication.

The first tip-off that this situation was taking a severe turn towards metrosexual land was the fact that rather than heading to a barber (or how about the bathroom with a good old Bic razor?), Damon opted for a stylist. Call me old-fashioned, but I just don’t see any need for a man to go to a stylist, unless, say, he had a bad run-in with a falling tub of bleach and needs help fixing it. It is one thing for a Ryan Seacrest to have beautiful golden streaks put in his hair, but it is quite another for a baseball player whose hair will be smooshed under either a hat or a helmet 80% of the time. I simply do not see the need. And honestly folks, how hard is it to shave?! He needed professional help? I don’t have any experience with facial hair, but I have certainly shaved my legs and I managed a-ok without any paid help.

Of course, during the renovation process Damon made sure to take plenty of photos. Very glamorous! I am impressed with his soft, supple skin and his lustrous, shiny hair….Damon is quite a delicate flower of a man. Let's just hope he doesn’t mind getting his uniform grass-stained in the outfield from time to time.

    Two things: when you are going to preseted to the New York media for the first time... and you have hundreds of thousands of Red Sox fans pissed off at you... you better run to a stylist to work on that image.

    Helmet hair won't be in the mix for another two months yet.

    As for shaving, it sucks.

    I know you arent a Dodgers fan...but what are your thoughts about the new Dodgers infield and team??? When was the last time you got to see the Yanks live? Thanks for the blogger help...if you click on my name you will see my blog and I linked your blog to mine because you write very well about our Yankees

    the last time i saw the yanks was when they played anaheim in the playoffs. i've seen them many many times but never in their home stadium :(

    as for the dodgers, I think that with their renovated infield they are all but a lock for the NL west. I anticipate that they will finish well above .500 this year...

    I am a Yankee fan living in Red Sox territory. I get NESN (the Red Sox sports Channel) and can't get YES. When I can't get a Yankee game, I watch the Red Sox. What better than cheering the Sox to lose if you can't watch the Yankees. Damon a delicate flower! I don't think so. He climbs fences and walls fielding the ball (like Jeter) and is great at bat. Time will tell if he can make the switch but I'll be cheering that he's now a Yankee!!!!

    Regarding the haircut (er, uh, hairstyle...), it must have been traumatic. Check out all of the glasses of wine (empty) in the photo. If he can't cope with getting a haircut/shave, can he cope with his first at bat in Yankee stadium?
