Friar Friday Merch #46

I have an excuse for being late this week. I was expecting this hat to arrive on Saturday, but it didn't come in until today.

It's this year's "Stars and Stripes" (Independence Day) hat. Now, MLB has been doing these special hats for a few years now, and I've never bought one. That's because they've all been ugly. This year's are actually pretty good (for the away teams at least). Teams that are on the road on July 4th get a grey hat and home teams get white. The white hats.....are white. I've mentioned a million times how I don't like white hats. The grey is awesome, and it's going to look great with the Padres grey uniforms. The red around the logo looks a bit orange in the right light. For the Padres, it gives the cap a great 1990s retro look.

The hat is a weird mesh texture. I think the BP/Spring Training hats are that way too? I can't remember. Anyways, it's comfortable.

The plan is to take off the stickers and bend the bill (I'm old school) then wear it this weekend while I'm in Phoenix. Going to see the dbags play the rockies. I hope they both lose.
