Do We Have to Keep the Dumb Hats?



Baseball is back in DC! It's wonderful that Peter Angelos is done extoring money from the league and this is finally a done deal.

The elder statesman of local sportscasting, the immortal George Michael (not the gay pop star, the other one), was reflecting on his sadness at seeing baseball leave the city 33 years ago. His (and others') tone was of such wonderment on the local news that I could not help but note that the age of Christ at his death is also the amount of time people have waited for the resurrection of the national pasttime in the nation's capital.

But really, those hats must go. In addition to being hideous, they remind me of the president.
