Could you imagine if Steinbrenner sold the Yankees? 8o That'd be interesting...

I don't blame Big Stein. If I spend that much money, I'd be upset too.
Hell, I wish I could yell at my fantasy teams this week, they are all sucking bad.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

Not really an excuse and Tampa's offense isn't exactly chopped liver.


its not nearly as good as baltimores or the red sox.

and tampas starting pitching is horrible....

i expect the yankees to sweep them just as the sox did. easy series.
I kinda hope the Yankees get swept now :-b

Way to go, George. Glad to see you're remaining in character. The season's less than two weeks old, but let's throw them under the bus anyway.

Obviously, I enjoy all bad things that may happen to the Yankees, but it's not just because I'm a Red Sox fan. I've always had an intense dislike for business owners who insist that all their employees be "clean cut" as though this makes a difference in how they perform. To me, it's an abhorrent policy, one that strikes at the heart of personal freedom and is an abuse of power that can only be rationalized by a control freak...which is the definition of Steinbrenner. Can't stand the guy, and that has nothing to do with the baseball team he owns.

But it helps.

I'm curious as to how there's a relationship between being a professional and growing a beard or mustache.

ok, i was just yelled at by my new employers so id be happy too.

It gives the impression that your too lazy to even shave. You have to look like a professional. You cant look like you were out drinking beers till 4 in the morning and didnt have time to shave.

heres an example of an application i found.

In addition to proper dress, employees are expected to present a clean, neat and business-like
appearance. For example, male employees are expected to have neatly combed hair and to be clean
shaven.
