By this hat, I'm not talking about Sox hats in general but this specific hat. My Sox hat, which I bought before the start of the 2004 season. My hat has been through a lot but clearly has never been through the wash-- because guys don't wash hats.

Grotesque? I prefer well-worn.

 

I suppose I should qualify that and say this guy doesn't wash his hats, but honestly I'm not aware of any guy who does. Once they're washed, they lose their shape and they're just not the same again. I don't really want to lay out $30 for a new lid and this gritty one is kind of a badge of honor. It should be noted that prior to me purchasing this hat the Red Sox hadn't won a World Series since 1918. They've won three since. Coincidence? It is pretty filthy though...

probably not OSHA compliant to have this on the console
