Padres are now....Cool?

At least their hats are.

For starters, I live in Lubbock, Texas. This means there are exactly 13 Padres fans of which I can talk to in the entire city of Lubbock, and I know 0 of them. Whenever I spot a Padres hat whether at the gym or at the store, I like to try to start a conversation about the Padres.

So far, 0-12 with 12 strikeouts...

Every single person looks at me like I'm wearing crocs, then proceeds to tell me they only like the way the hat looks.

Wait... Whaaat?

I have seen more Padre hats than Yankee hats and honestly I am a little confused. Sure it's great that the Padres logo is getting out there, but do we really want these people as the ambassadors for Padre baseball?

Then again is these profits help bring in more talent to the team, then who am I to complain.

What do you guys think?
