Cap Standings

New, 49 comments

I have a tradition, or perhaps you'd call it a ritual or superstition, while attending Cub games.

I never go without a baseball cap. And, over the last few years, I have done this: I'll wear a cap until the Cubs lose while I'm wearing that cap, then change, wear the next one till they lose, etc. This doesn't mean that once they lose, I'll never wear that cap again; I can come back to it later in the season. Don't worry, I have LOTS of caps to choose from.

The only exception to this is my 23-year-old fitted Cubs cap, which I wear only on Opening Day.

This year, I've decided to keep track of the club's record while wearing specific caps. You can track the progress here throughout the season. Click on the thumbnailed cap to see a full-size photo. I'll update this with each game I attend, and there's a link to this post on the right sidebar under "Stat Corner".
