It's Dave Sims Hat Club night, and that has absolutely no real meaning except a lot of people showing up tonight are going to be wearing hats at Safeco Field - never a bad thing.
Geoff Baker of the Times has a fedora and looks sharp. Ryan Divish tried to buy a similar piece today and apparently could not find a hat that fit his giant head. He'll stretch a baseball cap on that coconut.
That's his story, not mine.
Sims has brought hats back to Safeco and the Seattle Mariners organization. Was a time, back when the earth was cooling, when gentleman always wore hats, and many women did, too.
They even wrote songs about it ...
'Get your coat and grab your hat, leave your worries on the doorstep, just direct your feet, to the sunny side of the street ...'
It was a wonderful rap tune. Lil Wayne did it.
So throw something atop your bean and come out to a ball game. Oh, and bring one for me - I forgot all about it.
