    The southward pointing arrow with Enter Here printed above it was a baaaaaaaad choice.
    That would depend on wheter you meant it or not, too...

    I've never been a big fan of the monochrome MLB caps and the other weird stuff, but the ones at the site below are interesting to look at, if nothing else...

    http://www.ecapcity.com/goods_list.php?cid=386

    There is no "next page" arrow at the bottom of the page, so you'll have to click on the individual page numbers.

    In some cases the colors are easily recognizable as the scheme of other current and historical teams, just used with the wrong logo...



    ...while others are just strange...

    I need to say that I hate how nearly every guy at my college (and I imagine nearly every high school/college) has multiple baseball caps that they alternate routinely. If the hats had ANYTHING but a team's logo on it I wouldn't mind, but damn man wearing a hat is supposed to show your fandom for your team, not just because you think their logo looks cool.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I saw one yesterday. It's blue, and has Cincy on it, with the Reds C at the end. It's horrible.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    I hear you can get those out west -- but from what I've heard, you show your support for a different kind of "team" when you wear it.

    Yea, I saw a guy wearing a Reds cap a month or so ago and asked what he thought about Volquez. When he gave me a confused look, I pointed out that he was wearing a Cincinnati Reds cap. He looked truly shocked and said, "Really? I thought it was a red Cubs hat..."

    The White Sox...had the all blue caps in the late 60's early 70's and then went to the Red cap in the middle 70's....but kept the same SOX lettering ...they looked like those hats that you think were made to look like someone else's team colors as well.

    When i wear the blue or red Sox cap.....people don't really believe that they were hats worn by those teams during a certain period of time.
