I love Yankee’s caps. I’m not really a big baseball fan though. The last time I can remember consistently following the sport or a team was when Griffey played for the Mariners (the first time) and they won the division championship against the Yankee’s, ironically. I have been wearing the same Yankee’s hat for nine years and I just bought a new one. I’ve been threatening to buy one for a couple of years now, but when I go into a hat store it never seems to cross my mind. This isn’t to say that I haven’t bought other hats or other styles of Yankee’s hats; I have, but I’m not talking about any sort of Yankee’s hat. I’m referring to the classic navy blue with the white logo hat. You can’t go wrong with that hat. It’s unconsciously become my signature thing. I found this out when I was coming out of the store at school and this guy stopped me to ask me where my hat was. I honestly did have it with me, but I left it in the class when I went to get a pack of gum (my breath was on ten). He told me that he day dreams about me in my hat. I’m still unsure about the meaning of that statement but I accepted it and kept moving. If you haven’t noticed, this is a big milestone for me. I love my hat and have become quite attached to it. I didn’t really want a new one, but I was tired of people making fun of how filthy it was (is).
I often take my hat off or push it back on my head when I get hot and have been told by many to never show anyone the inside of my hat, ever. People have actually told me they’re embarrassed when they think someones seen the inside, lol. I obviously don’t care and show people the inside of my hat quite often (maybe they’ll feel bad and buy me a new one). So, although I know the posting of this pic would be strongly discouraged, here it is. I bet you can’t guess which ones the new one……I know it’s gross. Don’t judge me.
Look at how discolored my old hat is, it’s so sad.
Apparently New Era started making their hats one size bigger at some point within the nine years between these hats. I had to buy the new hat in a 7 1/8 and it fits exactly like the old hat, which is a 7 1/4……I’m not getting rid of my old hat, by the way, it’s my baby.
Interestingly, my favorite team from the 90′s (when I actually watched baseball) had my favorite player, who now plays for my favorite team in 2009. Alex Rodriguez.
While I’m at it, I may as well mention the fact that the Nike Griffey Air Max’s are one best pair of vintage Nike’s out there. I didn’t get a pair back in the day (mom was on some crazy stuff), but they are definitely on my list. I know they were retroed, but I can’t fit men’s shoes. So I have to hunt down a OG 1996 pair, which I actually would prefer anyway…..So take that Nike!
One last thing and I swear I’m finished…..What’s up with a A.Rod shoe deal Nike?
