The New York Yankees are trying to shut down the yankeeshater.com guy. Of course, as a result, ESPN.com just printed an article on it, and so he just got a lot of free publicity. While I'm not a huge fan of the shrill anti-Yankee crowd, I appreciate the guy's logo designs (the throwback Mariners hat has always been my favorite). What I can't understand is: why does this always happen? Some company or organization tries to ban something, and in the process brings it to everyone's attention, and ends up giving it far more publicity than it had previously. All while coming across as the bad guys. Which they are, in this case, since they're the Yankees, but you know what I mean.
