Friar Friday Merch #45

Today I have a giveaway hat that I'd like to share with you. It's from 2003, the Padres last year in Jack Murphy Stadium. The hat advertises the new home of the Padres: Petco Park.

The back shows the phrase "Say goodbye to the Q" which I hated. I hate the corporate sponsor name for the murph. I hated it in 1997, and I still hate it 16 years later. At least now, I can easily make quick elitist judgements against people who use the corporate name. Real fans call it the murph still (though I suppose super fans are still calling it San Diego stadium). I hate that Petco Park has a corporate name too, but there aren't any good alternative names to use instead.

The website on the sweat band is a really nice touch actually.

Overall, it's pretty good quality for a free hat. Stiff cardboard bill. Sits decently deep on your head for an adjustable cap.
