It looks good on you

One of the little perks of being a sportswriter is that most of the parks will give you whatever promotional item they hand out to the fans on a given night.

I have a bookcase at home full of stuff I’ve received from assorted stadiums. Mostly bobblehead dolls and other cheap trinkets. If the Hall of Fame ever needs this stuff, I’m their guy.

But I was clueless what to do with tonight’s gift, which was a camouflage Rockies cap.

It’s actually a nice hat, but I just can’t see myself ever wearing it.

So after much consideration, I have decided to give it to Kyle Farnsworth tomorrow. Kyle likes to shoot things in the woods, he often wears camouflage clothing in the clubhouse and perhaps this will somehow lead to his being traded to the Rockies.

Now technically, giving the players gifts is a serious breach of ethics. But I won’t tell my boss if you don’t.

UPDATE, 11:30 a.m.: I just gave Kyle the hat. He was thrilled. “You can never have enough camouflage hats,” he said.

Well, of course, everybody knows that.
