Bluebird Banter has already scooped this one up, but it’s not like there are a million other things to talk about right now, so… via the @DunedinBlueJays, here are the Jays’ new batting practice caps for 2013.
In his headline Minor Leaguer writes that they’re “more horrible than expected,” but I think I have to quibble with that slightly. They’re probably exactly as horrible as expected. Maybe I’d have to see them on someone’s head, but… I don’t know. They’re OK, as far as hats with absurdly large maple beacons are concerned. And while the ridiculously designed, incorrect maple leaf with the weird nub is bad, at least it’s not as atrocious as the Bank of Canada putting the leaf from a damn Norway maple on our shitty new money. I mean, really? It isn’t bad enough that they’re so thin and stick so close together that I’m sure I’ve paid $40 when I only wanted to throw down twenty multiple times already? And it’s only been, like, a month?
These hats, though… they’re OK, I guess. Whatever moves units, right? Give the people what they want.
