Morning Look: Hat Tricks and Nat Hats
So several people have asked me what happens to all those dozens if not hundreds of hats that poured onto the ice Sunday afternoon. "Does Slap Shot get first dibs on the hats?" Reader Tim e-mailed. "With the struggling economy, has there been a decrease in the number of hats thrown onto the ice?" And so on.
The boring answer: the hats are placed into giant garbage cans, and then donated to charity. And Ovechkin likes seeing them.
"It's so cool and especially when we play in sold-out and lots of hats go to the ice," he said on Sunday. "It's amazing feeling. I wish it come every game. It's good for Ted, so I'm happy for him too."
That's right, it's good for Ted, because all those people who donated their hats to charity now need new Caps lids. So I got to looking around the Internet in an effort to find the best Caps hat for such a cap-less Cap fan, when I discovered this sad truth: there is no Best Caps Hat. They're all boring. Sure, Ovechkin's personal line of hats are pretty striking, but they're not technically Caps hats.
In fact, there are virtually no interesting Redskins or Wizards hats either, at least not that I could find. But Nats hat? Oh yeah. There are interesting Nats hats. Go here for a glance at the weirdness, and shield your eyes if necessary.
