I need a new baseball cap; my old Mets hats were worn out and gross and have been donated to charity. So I’m in the market for one. My nephew says the above Mets cap is “the bomb.” It’s called the New York Mets Nike Royal L91 Alpha Swoosh Relaxed Flex Hat. If you like it, click on the hat and it will take you to Amazon to buy it (a tiny portion of the price goes toward keeping this site running).
Since my nephew is an incredibly gifted graphic designer, I trust his creative eye. However, I’m not sure this hat is “me” since I’m more old-school in style. Though I’ll consider this cap, I’ll keep looking — and periodically post what I find.
What’s your thought? Do you like this cap? Do you know someone who might? Are you into these fancy styled modern hats or prefer the traditional ones that resemble those worn on the field? Why or why not?
