If one thing has become clear in this age of social media, it's this: everybody likes lists and rankings. For those who have followed me on Twitter or read my columns on TCIPF, you know that my personal inclination is to take lists for what they really are: a functional means by which to collate detailed and comprehensive material, and present it in an overly simplistic manner.
Last night, the San Francisco 49ers (and the New Orleans Saints) won the award for Best Game of the Year at the ESPYs. I covered that game and saw it live. It was one of the greatest games I have ever seen.
But it wasn’t the best game of the year.
As Mike Klis of the Denver Post points out, Game 6 of the World Series was a whole lot better — and I didn’t even watch the game (I was at a concert).
The fact that the Cardinals scored in the bottom of the 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th to stay alive in that game was amazing. The Rangers had the win, but the Cardinals never gave up. That might have been the most exciting game in baseball history.
But then again, baseball is my favorite sport so there is some bias there.
Compared to the 49ers game, the Cardinals had drama and high stakes that was at a whole different level. But as Klis points out, football is king in this country.
New Era is dropping new NFL Sideline Caps today and they are the best batch of headgear the company’s made this year for the league. The caps are simple and has a great lasting look to them. This is something I would most definitely want to wear out and about.
Also today, the company will start selling caps with throwback logos on them. I don’t know if they’ll do them for all the teams (probably not) but I love caps with old logos. Great history should never be forgotten.
Do any of these caps look appealing? Would you get one?
** Speaking of New Era, check out this slideshow of how the caps are made.
