Spike Lee sports a special Yankees championship cap

Check out the slick New York Yankees cap that Spike Lee wore to the NBA All-Star game last night in Dallas. I hadn’t seen this one before. It celebrates the Yanks’ recent World Series triumph — the 27th in franchise history — and notes the years of all of them.

Of all the teams in major league baseball, only a few could carry something like this off. You have to have won a number of times for the cap to make any sense. Wikipedia’s entry on the World Series has a nifty chart noting how many times each franchise has won the championship, and it’s amazing how few titles many of them have claimed. For example, the Blue Jays, Cubs, Indians, Marlins, Mets and Phillies have won only two titles apiece. Particularly for fans of old-line teams in Chicago, Cleveland and Philadelphia, that represents a lot of “wait until next year” agony.

    1. Not yet. I checked with his agency, but they told me he’d moved on. I haven’t had a chance to follow up (lame, I know, since it’s been a couple of months). I’ll try again.
