Sunday afternoon uniform madness
I think there's something wrong with my brain. Every once in a while I get baseball on my mind and this weekend has been particularly bad. Problem is, it's never anything constructive that I can use to benefit GROTA.
Ever since this morning, I've been chasing uniforms. I have discovered that I am particularly fond of the home and road jerseys worn by the Braves in the early 1970's - you've seen them, Hank Aaron was wearing one when he smashed Ruth's record.
Although I'm not a Braves fan, although I care nothing for Atlanta, I have to own one. I just have to. I'm nuts that way.
What's more, I also covet the hats. It all started because the Blue Jays began wearing these ones on Friday night home games:
So far as I can tell, hats with white (or different colored) fronts have been warn by several teams throughout baseball's history - the Brewers, Expos, Jays, Padres, and yes, the Braves.
I don't know why, but I swear that they release endorphins in my brain. I. Must. Have.
Anyway, I take it back. This coveting of mine will help content for the blog because I'm going to write an article about Cubs uniforms throughout the ages; just not today. Come back tomorrow morning, it might be here by then.
