I thought it might be fun to occasionally reveal some of the worst decisions of my life.
Humiliation. Always fun.
This purple SportCenter hat, which I purchased while on a tour of ESPN circa 1995 and wore religiously for more than two years, was not a good decision on my part.
A purple hat that advertises a television show is not exactly the way one should move though this world. Also, it was purple and cheaply made, so by year two of its tenure on my head, the sun had bleached it to an oddly pink hue.
And still I wore it. It was atrocious.
Worst of all, I thought it was very cool.
Although ESPN still sells SportCenter hats today, I have never seen another human being wearing one of these hats, and I live about 30 minutes from ESPN headquarters and have known my fair share of ESPN employees and on-air talent.
That pretty much says it all.
