I eat my vegetables. I try to drive like a rational, sensible human being. I avoid dropping f-bombs around my kid. And I’m sure the rest of the Uni Watch audience is no different — we’re doing the best we can with what we’ve got.
But the above image makes me wonder if we’ve been doing something wrong — if we’ve been upsetting some sort of cosmic uni-centric force. Have you guys and gals been sneaking out office supplies on the sly? Stealing from the collection plate or something? I know I don’t pick up the dog poop nearly as often as I should, but is this just punishment?
I’m wandering. Sorry. Back to the point: Regional championship hats? Seriously? Is anybody gonna look back in six years — or six months, even — and say, “Oh man, that 2008 Midwest regional was INSANE. And it was so awesome, I’m glad I have this generic souvenir hat as a token of said awesomeness.” Now, the World Series or Super Bowl or NBA Finals … well, maybe not the NBA Finals … those things make more sense. But a regional championship? (“Yeah, we’re at least fourth!”) Does it say Final Four on there anywhere, even? It seems like any accomplishment gets a hat now, which makes it considerably less exciting. And think of how dull it is if you have TWO hats. Yup, that dull.
Enjoy your Sunday — it’s time for baseball, finally. Bryan
