More Recent Acquisitions

Many of you may think that I buy lots of stuff given the number of “recent acquisitions” posts I have on my blog. I guess I have bought a decent amount of stuff lately, but the most recent acquisitions came from a gift certificate, so there was no outlay of cash. Well, OK, I did pay $0.46 to cover the difference between the purchase and the gift certificate amount.

Anyway, I have had my eyes on a Brewers hat with the old school MB/glove logo for quite some time. Initially, I wanted the all blue home hat, but after watching the Pirates play the Brewers in Milwaukee on MLB.TV and seeing some fans wearing the blue and yellow away hat, I opted for the away hat instead.

I also wanted a vintage Pirates hat. I opted for this one because it was the most unlike any of the others available. The fabric is really nice – it’s almost fuzzy.

Both of these hats fit well. I ordered them in 7 5/8 because I have a Red Sox fitted hat that is 7 1/2 and it’s too small. I also ordered a black 1948-1970 Pirates hat which looks almost identical to the current official Pirates hat except that it has a yellow button on top instead of a black button. I ordered this hat in 7 5/8 too, but it is significantly too large. So, I’m not sure what to do. Should I return it or try to sell it on eBay? I could try to make it shrink, but I’m not sure how to do that. Any suggestions?


Pirates on the doorstep of .400, not last place

After yesterday’s 5-4 victory over the Cubs, the Pirates find themselves with a win percentage of .399 and the Cubs .401 for the season.  Thus, a win tonight would put the Pirates over .400 (.403, to be exact) and it would put the Pirates ahead of the Cubs by half a game, to get out of the basement of the NL Central for the first time all season.  Let’s go Bucs!
