One of the critical questions I face this week as I prepare to drive cross-country is what baseball caps to bring on the trip and when to wear each of them.
I could, for example, stick with my San Francisco Giants caps all the way. I could wear the standard cap Thursday, a vintage one Friday, the 2010 World Champions cap on Saturday and the appropriate orange-brimmed model on Sunday.
Maybe I should wear caps from eastern times while traveling in the west, and vice versa? That makes each cap all the more exotic.
Or maybe I should wear the cap of the team most appropriate for the region I’m traveling in: Giants out west, Cubs when I reach the “Triple I League” states, Indians when I reach Ohio and Yankees when I hit the East Coast.
I’m not sure what I’ll do. On a 2,900 mile drive over four days, I’ll have plenty of time to contemplate.
