Wearing third-party gear
So, I have spent a good deal of energy in my life sneering at folks who wear hats or jerseys to ballgames that don't represent either of the teams playing.
In my opinion, of course, supporting the home team is expected and appreciated, and I respect those who wear the garb of the visiting team, especially when done in a hostile park. But I have never understood someone going to say, a Nats-Phillies game and wearing a Yankees cap.
That being said, tomorrow, my college buddy is having me and my family to a suite at the Red Sox -Phillies game. I will be rooting for the Red Sox, mostly because I want the Phils to lose ground to the Nats. But it occurred to me: The only cap I would wear would be a Nats cap. It then quickly occurred to me that I am a hypocrite.
So, quick reaction--was my previous line of thinking wrong and I should go with my Nats cap? Or better to wear no cap and just root for the Sox?
