Johnny Damon arrived in New York for his physical but the real story was his haircut. And where? Well, at Salon Ishi, which New York magazine said had the best hair straightening treatment in 2004. All Gothamist can say is that Damon has a looker of a wife. It's amazing though not surprising that George Steinbrenner's money can do what the Queer Eye guys can't, as in metrosexualize baseball players. The next question is, where will Damon live? Manhattan, or Westchester or Long Island? Perhaps, even, New Jersey? Curbed, you may be a Red Sox fan, but get on this!

The city sports pages are thrilling over the fact that the Yankees offered $12 million more than the Red Sox, if only to dream again of a championship. Well, it's a long way until October.
