Nick Swisher got a haircut this week, which might not be worth mentioning if it were anyone but Swisher. But Swisher does everything at high volume, with a witty line or two, and this was no different.
A. J. Burnett introduced him to a Toronto hair stylist Swisher called Zohan, after a blow-dryer-wielding character in an Adam Sandler movie. The haircut is short on the sides, spiky on the top and long — but not too long — in the back. He calls it a Swish-hawk, but Johnny Damon had another name for it: the Brian Boz, as in Bosworth, the 1980s linebacker with a distinctive haircut and little N.F.L. success.Source
Girardi wanted A.J.'s head in the game! Not wondering how his stylist recommendation could have gone so wrong! Unfortunately, his plan didn't work.
"How could Jacques have done such a thing to Swisher? To me?!"( More gameday picturesCollapse )
Outside the game, items from Old Yankee Stadium are being prepped for sale. One of the items is a clubhouse door that Jeter hit with his bat before home games.
It's making me sad to hear in such intimate detail how the old stadium is being sold off bit by bit by bit of dirt somehow pasted on photographs yay? Also sad that I'm not extremely wealthy. :p
