This is so stupid.
This is so stupid.
I am stealing from myself as Jimmy Buffett one said, and I have floated this idea for Jackie Robinson Day, but…
What if just one player per team wore the camo uniforms instead of every single player and coach taking part in whatever this America F*ck Yeah Salute The Troops thing MLB is doing, and overdoing for three days.
What if each team picked a representative. Lets say it’s Curtis Granderson. All the Mets are in normal uniforms, but Curtis plays in camo. As the team’s representative, he is spotlighted and speaks about why he wanted to be the one who would be honored with the camo uniform, and then maybe tell a personal story or highlight a particular service person that meant something to him or that he just happened to hear about.
Now here I started out to do a cut and paste and was going to show an example along the lines of “look. I googled (search term) and found….” and was going to post a photo of someone. Then I thought twice and although my heart was in the right place, I definitely don’t want to do the opposite of what I am trying to do and turn someone’s death into a blog post. Anyway….
Curtis could share a story with someone. We could together learn about someone and that person would be remembered, which is what the point of the day is….not this vague America F*ck Yeah Support The Troops thing that this has turned into. Yay camo jerseys.
Much like Robinson Day, I think by going to big MLB loses impact. Pick one person, and let that person carry the message. Just a though. Very open to other ideas, hit me up on the Facebook page.
Decided to deep dive on the caps websites again….this is some sort of Americana Patch cap thing.
I saved this one from yesterday since I have the soccer games this morning and needed some content. Excellent read…..and you can cross out Yankees and write in Mets for most of this stuff.
It’s not just that the Yankees have priced out the average fan. They have no remorse in doing so and have no problem telling everyone that the rich fan is much more important than the middle class fan. The team built a concrete moat in the new, charmless Yankee Stadium so fans who couldn’t afford the good seats couldn’t go near them.
David Wright last played one year ago today.
SLACKISH REACTION: when I wrote this at 8:45pm the Mets were cruising and JDG was ace-ing. Hopefully it stayed that way. I had to leave the house at 6am for a soccer tournament.
The Mets will wear this this weekend…
and this at home on Monday….(yuck diaper jerseys)
with these caps
Jason and I talked about some stuff on the podcast. The Mets part starts 33 minutes in – we talk about the Terry Watch Watch, Ron Darling, and Jase didn’t like the Seaver article AT ALL.
