mBiaMTk.pngYou're right, but I really need one of those hats that Skeels is wearing.

I bought a hat like that in Cooperstown 20 years ago.  It was my favorite cap but I lost it about 10 years ago.

 

I am a broken man.

I used to have an older version off white hat with a navy bill and D and orange stripes along the panel stitching.  It is my favorite non modern hat.

You've just asked Warwick if he's seen Crocodile Dundee and he is now contemplating how to dispose of you.
