Actress Kate Hudson -- daughter of actress Goldie Hawn and one of the almost-famous Hudson brothers, (Ernie?) -- has been voted
EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH!
The award was given as a result of a month in which Hudson -- former star of "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" -- batted .360 with 6 home runs and 18 RBIs, while fielding a flawless third base. Her key home runs against Minnesota, California and Philadelphia led the Yankees to the cusp of the franchise's 27th World Championship.
Questions were raised when it became apparent that Hudson is not technically a Yankee employee but is a "friend" of one. Under New York State law, working benefits cannot legally be extended to friends or acquaintances of contractually hired employees, except in extreme circumstances, such as a great post-season by that certain employee!
Congratulations, Ms. October!
