A New Hat?

Forty minutes after the Harrisburg Senators lost to the Richmond Flying Squirrels Saturday night, I saw something in the street on City Island.

It was a hat. A Flying Squirrels hat.

I picked it up. There wasn’t a soul around. Obviously someone dropped it on their way back to the south parking lot and never noticed.

It’s a nice hat. I like the color. The logo’s nice. I don’t know that I’d ever seen the Squirrels logo up close like this before. It’s very new, probably bought last week. It smells of perfume.

If you were on City Island for Saturday’s game and lost a Flying Squirrels hat, please get in touch.

Why was I on City Island forty minutes after the game?

I walked across the Walnut Street bridge to downtown and walked around a little, as far as the Episcopal cathedral, and sat on a park bench along Front Street. It was a lovely night. And, by the time I got back, traffic had cleared off City Island and it was smooth sailing heading home.

The Senators played the Flying Squirrels in a 6-game series. The Senators took four of the six games. Their two losses? The two games I attended, Opening Day and last night. Clearly, I am the reason the Senators lost games… 😆

My in-person record this year: 0-2.
