    Seriously...you can get an Armenian genocide T shirt....
    To be fair, for most Americans, I think 9/11 was a little more significant than the Irish Potato Famine...

    School dress code, pointing out the silliness.

    And the potato famine was big in my family.

    Can you show us links to the issue? I can't seem to really find any "hat deal" that happened after 9/11? However, if I remember the time correctly (this was 13 years ago), it seems like you couldn't move without seeing someone wearing an American flag and baseball players were no exception at the time. Maybe the league made an exception during the circumstances?

    Not to mention an overloaded VA not planned for by Rumsfeld/Cheney.
    And what about the 22 suicides a day Navy ?


    and to bring up 6 million Jews is something I never thought I would see from you .


    Now you know. Navy Pride has no limits.

    Mighty sad. Some people will stoop to anything to try to make a point.

    I can do better. As much as I really do despise Keith Olbermann, he tells this like no one else can. Caution: this will make you angry.

    This seems to be a rather small issue that didn't really hit the waves. However, the answer is even clearer on this issue or should be clearer. The MLB as the ultimate arbiter of rules in US baseball set a standard on how 9/11 would be honored by its players. It stated that it did this for reasons of uniformity, however, it's really the money that counts in all of these things. Keith Olberman asking people to find their souls doesn't really take into account that hat regulations are there because of free market contracts. They, the contracts, don't have souls. With that said, MLB has had a contract with New Era (hats) as well as Majestic (uniforms) for a very long time. A single player violating the league's contract could mean tens of thousands in fines for the team/player as well as a lawsuit for MLB by its providers. In the end, the players were allowed to honor the event (the way the league asked them to) and MLB worked out a deal with its providers (even using a lapel can be a litigious issue in major sports). I'm not sure why there would be a problem.
