Hyphen happy

The editors at yahoo.com went a little hyphen happy when writing about a Hall of Fame career:

fp hall-of-fame

There’s absolutely no reason to hyphenate Hall of Fame. It’s a proper noun, and even if it’s used as an adjective, it doesn’t have hyphens any more than “a Ralph Lauren sweater” or “a Donald Trump toupee” requires a hyphen.
