Hats and Maine.
Last night my wife and I celebrated our arrival in Maine by going to see the Portland Sea Dogs play the New Hampshire Fisher Cats in a AA level game at Hadlock Field in Portland, Maine. I enjoy minor league baseball games but I kept getting a lot of strange looks. It might have been due to my face being in pieces after my faceplant off the bike coupled with my hands wrapped (fear not I was still able to have a dog at the game for dinner). It might have been due to people recognizing a true rock star in their midst. After thinking about it a while longer I figured it was probably most due to the fact that I was wearing a New York Mets hat in the womb of the Red Sox nation (the Sea Dogs are part of the Red Sox farm system).
I bought this hat to wear during the rest of my stay in Maine. If people here continue to stare at me it must be that Maine-ites recognize a true rock star, right?
