That Hat (Since Bryan Demanded It)




This is that hat. It's a Stratton brand felt "Sheriff" style hat. Except ours has a little thing in the front of the crown that holds a smaller version of our badge.

You can't see it real good in this picture, but the brim bends upwards all the way around. Just slightly. Alot of cops wear this style of hat. Either these or those flat brimmed "Trooper" style hats. I think the flat brimmed ones look even sillier but at least they don't collect so much water when it rains.

All I did with mine was bend down the brim in front about an inch. Maybe two. Not a whole lot. It doesn't take much. Then I wear it just slightly cocked over my right eye. Like some other famous studmuffin who seems to be fond of hats.

Not that I'm comparing myself to Harrison Ford. I'm just saying he has good taste in hats, too.

So anyway, it's just a slight alteration. Just enough to give it a bit of my own personal style.

And just enough to give them up at Central a case of the googly-moogly's. I don't care. We work in a prison, for goodness cakes. Get the frack over it.

So there it is. The Hat Explained.

Friday (back to the Hive again) is going to be Punch the Clock Day and Thomas Crapper Day (Oh, so fitting....), Auschwitz Liberation Day, Holocaust Remembrance Day, National Pre-School Fitness Day, Viet Nam Peace Day and Chocolate Cake Day.

That's alot to take in, I know. Start out slowly....

  1. I have a size 8 head so hats that fit are hard to come by. I too think I look good in a hat.

  2. I am so thinking of you as Indy now. Somehow, it fits you too. Now all you need to do is provide a likeness of your father and convince me that he is Sean Connery.

  3. Well, as Rev in the Hunters you did state that you were Han Solo stuck in the body of Rambo!! haha and I too look good in a hat. As you know I wear mine cocked back on the back of my head with the bill sticking straight up. The inmates have told me before that they can tell what kind of mood I am in by my hat placement. Straight up, I am happy and in a good mood. If it is worn the way a hat is meant to be, I am in work mode and they are about to get their cell thrashed hahaha

    1. TJ- If this is Rambo's body he's going to be pissed when he gets it back, I guarantee.

      Your hat is a fine barometer of your mood. I saw you take it completely off once. nearly scared me to death! (grin)

  5. What was that one show called? "F-Troop"...

    But yeah, I've seen those kinds of hats before. Definitely better than the flat rimmed Stetsons. Every time I see someone wearing a Stetson they look like they've have a stiff pole shoved in their...

    Hey, my steak is almost done! Gotta go :D
