i can't take this kind of insult so early in the morning.

so around 8:00 this morning, i turn on the tv and find a Dawson's Creek re-run. the pilot episode, no less! so of course i must watch. i'm just eating my Special K, watching a teen soap, having a grand old time. and then. there is a scene where dawson rides up to joey on his bike, and he's wearing a backwards baseball hat. an ugly hat, too, like this khaki brown color with a faded navy blue bill. this is not bothering me so much until he reaches over to hug joey, and from the angle of the shot i see that it's a yankees hat.

oh. no. you. didn't.

i sat there going, "is that a fucking yankees hat?? no, it is not. no way. it is!! it's a fucking yankees hat!! are you fucking kidding me!!!" my cat bolted from the living room in fear, and i sat there muttering to myself all the way into commercial break.

this show is set in capeside, massachusetts. even though capeside is not a real place, if it were, it would be in the heart of red sox nation. how in the world did something like this happen? who allowed for such an affront?

i feel like i need to find out who the wardrobe director was for this particular episode. then i need to hire a private detective to track down this person, and then i will go to their home or place of employment. when i find them, i'll say, "are you so-and-so, wardrobe director for the pilot episode of Dawson's Creek?" and they will say, "yes." and then i will cuff them upside the head.

a fucking yankees hat. seriously.

I will come with you. And I will blame him 100% for what happened to Katie. The prototypical "ugly yankees hat" is a scientology emblem, if my research serves me correctly.

Apparently, young Dawson was a man of uncommon insight and refined taste, willing to buck the herd-like behavior of his peers and take a stand for a tradition of excellence, class, and long-term success. Good on him.

BTW, Katherine, I have to assume that you read The Sports Guy, no? Not only is he the best sportswriter in America, but he is a hard-core, no-apologies Boston homer. I get a feeling you'd love him.

I bet you think Pacey was a Sox fan, don't you?

toast, where did you get "katherine" from? :)

i do like bill simmons, most of the time. he can be very funny, and i of course appreciate the boston-centric nature of the columns. sometimes he can walk a fine line in terms of women and sports, but i don't think it's malicious, so i usually let it go.

he was a great read last fall during the playoffs.

oh and mike, of course pacey was a sox fan. pacey was superior to dawson in every way, wasn't he?

Just a dramatic flare. I'm goofy like that sometimes.
