If there were a Hall of Fame for the overuse of hyphens, Yahoo! Sports would be in it:
There’s no reason to hyphenate a proper noun, even when it’s used as an adjective.
I gotta give the Yahoo! Celebrity writer credit for trying to use hyphens in a compound modifier. But not too much credit, because he got it wrong:
He tried to combine “five-second to eight-second technical issue,” which is admirable. But the result isn’t quite right. The correct use of hyphens is: five- to eight-second technical issue.
