n.— «Lang made baseball writers feel special and committed himself to disclosing “frauds.” No Baseball Writers Association of America cards went to radio or television reporters. Bill Madden, Lang’s colleague at the Daily News, coined the term “foof” for all non-newspaper writers. Lang was forever on foof patrol.» —“Remembering baseball writer Jack Lang” by Steven Marcus Newsday (Long Island, New York) Jan. 28, 2007. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
