    I like Lou Piniella's story better. George Steinbrenner owned a hotel and when Lou arrived for 1974 spring training, George said to get a haircut. Lou said Jesus had long hair. George said, "Follow me," and they walked over to the hotel pool, and George said, "When you can walk across that water, you can wear your hair any way you want!"

    Good for Wooden. Carry yourself like a professional. I am not sure when the lumberjack look started becoming popular but if I was coaching a team I would be the same way. I think the New York Yankees are one of the few teams to actually still enforce this rule.
