I won a Red Sox had in a wager with a friend from Boston.
Occasionally I wear it. Not because I like the Sox, but because my hair is thinning ( thinning, not balding goddammit ), so I tend to wear a lot of hats.
Anyway, every time I've worn the thing, random people have come up to me and said something. Occasionally it's a Yankees fan walking past who says something like " screw you homo" or " ha ha C.C. smoked you last night" , but I'm used to Yankees fans randomly yelling at me so I really never notice.
But most of the time its Boston fans who pull me aside and ask, "what ya think about next year ? As I usually forget that I'm wearing the hat, having a stranger acost me and ask me random questions usually freaks me out. I don't know what it is with these folks, but when a Boston fan sees a Boston hat it makes me feel like I accidentally flashed a gang sign at a rap concert. It's like they just realized I'm the grand master at a Masonic lodge.
In the end, I usually reply, " same as last year." because even when I do realize what they're talking about, I don't know shit about baseball. And for whatever reason, that seems to do the trick.
