I dedicate this post to Scotty, the lone Mets fan on the staff.
Here's a story I originally came across yesterday on "The Sports Hernia", and it tickled me so much that I had to post it here.
After the newest addition, our favorite real Canadian (sorry, Terrence and Phillip), Jason Bay, was photographed recieving a New York Rangers hockey jersey.
In honor of the opportunity to poke fun of the apparent career mixup, the writers at "Hernia" tapped into the Mets history of crappy uniforms to bring us a bizzare series of Mets-themed hats from New Era, the hat company that is a favorite of MLB players and rappers.
Here are just a few of my favorites. Link for full selection will be provided at the end of the post.
First up: the hockey siren hat!
Mets fans will make newcomer Jason Bay feel right at home with every fan in the house wearing this glaring behemoth! Hernia says the siren is specifically wired to go off with a loud, annoying blare after a home run.
Next up: the dead rat!
I guess you can say this pretty much describes the Mets' up to now. HAW HAW!!
Batting third: antlers!
Yeah, I don't get the point of this either. Hernia says it's marketed toward stonecutters, hunters, and Knights of Columbus members who are Mets fans.
Batting cleanup: Lenny Dykstra!
Carson! I think I've found the perfect Mets hat for you to torture Scotty with!
In the 5-spot: Steve Phillips!
Uh, Scotty, you might have to explain this one to me...
Batting 6th: Zubaz!
If it weren't for those ugly-ass pants on the front, even I would consider buying this hat!
Finally, the home run hat!
My personal favorite :)
I will eventually do a followup to this post featuring bizzare hats from all the staff members' favorite teams. Not sure when I'll get around to it, but I will eventually.
Here's all the hats for your viewing pleasure.
Have a nice day!
