Dodging a bullet...kinda

So I had some errands to run today, down on the South side, near Comiskey (yes, I still call it "Comiskey" and Washington Park area. I don't go to the south side often - as little as possible actually. And today, I had to make a call - what hat to wear.

Now, I ALWAYS wear a Cubs hat. Every day for as far back as I remember, but today, that seemed like a bad choice -Ya think?? Garsh..

So I actually picked up a 2005 White Sox championship hat that I'd bought back in 05. Say what you want, it was still pretty cool that a Chicago team won...I just didn't know the extent of a-hole ism I would have to put up with since, but anyway...

When in Rome right?

Wrong. I couldn't do it. I just couldn't bring myself to put it on. So I did the next best thing - grabbed a non-baseball team hat - yes I do own one or two.

When in Rome, you don't necessarily have to do what the Romans do, but you damn well better not do what the Persians do...

Man your memory doesn't go very far back. I remember a time when you NEVER wore hats. I am not sure you were even a Cubs fan then ;)

Ps. Check out the video on this blog site. There is a Cubs reference buried about 1/2 way through.
