MLB Tries To Be Cool; Winds Up Disturbing

Maybe I'm late to the party on this, and pardon me because I'm no UniWatch, but look at this new bullshit MLB series of hats that are being sold this year. I own several New Era caps. They are my favorite hats, especially next to my Bengals cap that has never quite fit right (thanks, Reebok). I've grown tolerant of the pink and orange hats for every team. I can even look past a camouflage hat, begrudgingly, at this point. But, this is off-the-charts fucking lunacy. If I see someone wearing this at a Reds game this year I may have to hurl myself off the upper deck. I'm at a loss. What is it supposed to be? Someone threw a wet team logo against the wall and it's dripping down? Hard to imagine that scenario. A crooked logo is bleeding? Some morbid fantasy elements there, guys. Is it really necessary to tarnish every traditional element of the game? Does Bud Selig know these hats exist? I'll tell you what, if I see a picture of Commissioner Skeletor wearing one of these, I'll go out and buy the whole set. Ugh. The fucktard that dreamed this up should maybe watch a baseball game occasionally.

I'm with you on this one. Just awful. I think this is either one of the worst ideas for a hat or else we are getting really old.

When I was a kid we didn't have none of them there crazy dripping logos on our hats. And we liked it that way! Where's my metamucil...

no, this is a terrible idea for a hat. Maybe if it weren't for baseball I could see it. I still wouldn't fucking wear it though.

Jeebus. Yes. That is awful. Somehow I see AJ Pierzynski wearing it this year, though.

Gage said...

AJ will wear it while he gives a guy a piledriver.

I don't know.... I think its perfect.

I wear my hat tilted to the side. And, I've always wished I would wear it that way while still keeping the logo completely parallel with the ground. Also, I tend to get a lot of blood on my hats anyway. I always have to throw them out, but now it'll just look like its supposed to be there.

I hope they make collegiate versions!

Maybe New Era is taking a not-so-covert political stand on global warming--so damned hot, the logos melted.

Global warming or not, these hats blow. Maybe the blowing is supposed to keep you cool...

The White Sox version looks like the logo miraculously formed itself out of pigeon droppings.
