An unlikely sentence and a classic photo from the SI Vault

Trying to get back into the race with speeding New York, - 05.31.76 - SI Vault:
And thanks to Owner George Steinbrenner's ukase against long hair, the Yankees even had a sleek look to complement their racy attack.
You may have noticed I'm not talking much about the Sox lately. It's not that I'm not paying attention, it's just that it's so ... frustrating.

But, it's fun to remember years when the Sox/Yanks rivalry was relevant. I read this article because the picture popped up on facebook and found myself wondering if "ukase" was a typo. It's not.

So I'm posting this because I learned a new word, got to revive my distaste for Martin & Steinbrenner's mid-70s Yankees teams, and love this photo of Fisk unmasked, laying into (not especially sleek looking) Lou Piniella's kidney:

The Yanks, by the way, ended up playing the Reds in the 1976 World Series, as the Sox (famously) had the year before, and they also got worked over by the Big Red Machine.
