New hat time?

I've been receiving a number of comments about how nasty and ragged my retro-style Brewers cap has become. I need help from the Buffet to determine when is the appropriate time to retire a cap.

The picture includes my favorite Brewers cap as well as two hats I have tried out over the last year. To quote Garth Algar, the new caps were constrictive. Plus I look ridiculous in the pinwheel style cap.

Is it time for me to give in and wear in a new cap?

A hat is best retired from extended public use when one of 3 things happens: 1) The sweaty, dirty gunk that is caked on the inside and outside of the hat begins to support life, and that life, in combination with more added sweat, begins to give you a rash on your forehead. OR 2) People standing more than 3 feet away from you begin to tell you that your hat stinks. OR 3) The material of the hat becomes so worn away that your hair starts to stick out through the holes that have formed in the sides and top.

Keep the old hat. If you start wearing a new one now, you'll look like a poser who just jumped on the bandwagon.

And you don't look like a Corey Hart poser with that brand new Corey Hart retro t-shirt jersey. In fact, I don't even know if you liked Corey Hart last year. I'll have to go back through old emails to verify.

I say wear the hat that is the least smelliest.

I say get a hat with the new logo on it. There are some cool ones with the script B on it. I think that is cooler looking than the script M. I like them both though. I saw we drink a lot of Boones this weekend and then decide.

I agree on the Boones comment. "Tast the rainbow"

Wait a minute, I can get a hat with the script B? Sweet!

I'm still trying to recover from Mullet Night at the Sox game... the thought of Boones just made me puke in my mouth.
