RIP Old Friend |

Well I finally did it. I bought a new hat. I don’t do this all that often. So to me its like the changing of the guards. I think my old hat was about 5 years old. My parents, grandparents, and wife have been begging me to replace it for about 3 years now. My thought was that it was just starting to get warn in.

I decided this weekend that it was time for a new one. I was wearing it and couldn’t figure out what smelled so bad. I quickly realized it was coming from my hat. 5 years of sweat was starting to take it’s toll. Luckily, Treah said she couldn’t smell it yet.

This hat has been through a lot. I have warn it almost everyday at one point or another. In the last 5 years it has seen:

  • Me get Married
  • Me and Treah graduate from WVU, then start again
  • Me have 5 positions at work, all while working for the same place
  • My brother graduate, twice
  • Dad turning 50
  • Mom and Dad’s 25th Anniversary
  • Moves to and/or from 2 apartments, and 1 house
  • Getting a dog
  • WVU Men’s Basketball Team make it to the elite 8, then to the sweet 16
  • WVU Football go to 4 bowl games, including a win in a BCS bowl
  • I’m sure there is more to add to the list, I’ll add them as I remember or as people comment
  • Here’s a new and old pic, see if you can figure out which is which. Click on them for bigger versions.

    If the football or basketball team starts to suck, I’m switching back to my old hat.
