I found the hat I will be buying two years from now

This morning I bought a fitted (size 7 3/4) Los Angeles Dodgers 2016 All-Star Game hat from Lids.com. It normally retails for $39.99, but I got it for only $20.00 because it’s now on clearance.

Vin … Continue Reading “Vin Scully has no time for Socialism”

That says a lot because I’ve been all over the world, and I’ve seen lots of hats.  This hat, by far, is the ugliest hat I’ve ever seen. Why in the world would New Era … Continue Reading “The ugliest hat I have ever seen”

Bryce Harper benched for being Bryce Harper

Washington Nationals All-Star Bryce Harper has shown he’s more than willing to run his cranium full speed into the Dodgers Stadium out-of-town scoreboard, but not so much when it comes to running to first base on a groundout. Harper dogged it in yesterday’s 4-3 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals and was benched because of … Continue Reading “Bryce Harper benched for being Bryce Harper”
