Okay, I give. What's the deal with the disgusting, encrusted helmets and hats Major Leaguers are wearing now? I know it's more than just the natural dirt buildup from games, because some World Series players already had dirty hats in the first game--and they all got new hats for the World Series. In other words, they're actually pre-dirtying their hats. To what end I don't know. That helmet Manny Ramirez wears looks like something I wouldn't even touch, let alone wear.
And I think I speak for all Americans when I say "We've seen enough of Curt Schilling's bloody sock." That thing has been more analyzed than the Shroud of Turin.
Coming up in Game Three: Pedro Martinez and the world's first bell-bottomed baseball uniform.
