I was asked to remove my baseball cap at a boys basketball game recently.
I caused a little bit of a ruckus before finally obliging and walking away my tail between my legs. Can I please have my hat back at detention? Thank you.
The “security” guard informed me it was school policy and even little kids couldn’t wear their hats in the school. What a joke.
Behind me this “security” guard, obviously consumed with being in some kind of position of power, also forced a 70-some year old man to take his hat off. The humiliated senior eventually did so, exposing his shiny bald dome.
I understand nowadays there may be a need to ban headwear at some schools. But how about a little common sense?
Look at my photo on the right. Do I really look like a gang-banger? How about these little kids? Are they wearing their hats to the side, looking for trouble?
I really can’t wait to see the school’s hatless baseball team this spring.
