Who was that idiot who did sports on the 6pm news on NBC Connecticut on Monday?
What a moron. The guy went off on the “Stars and Stripes” caps big league ballplayers wore on Memorial Day, Independence Day, and will wear again on September 11th. That jerk called them “stupid.”
And by phone and email, viewers ripped that imbecile a new one. “Don’t you know all proceeds go to a veterans organization?”
Yes. And no.
The organization is called Welcome Back Veterans.org. They have a great looking website, and I really, really hope they live up to all they say they are and say they do. But who is Welcome Back Veterans.org? There is very little information, and you won’t find the answer on the website.
And all proceeds do not go to Welcome Back Veterans.org. How much? MLB apparently has no idea.
And check out this website of a company selling the caps for $36.99. The page displays the WBV.org logo. But if you can find where it says any proceeds go to that organization, let me know.
Oh, did I mention I did sports Monday at 6?
I should have either kept my mouth shut or made it clear that I think the hats look like they belong on the softball diamond.
I was wrong. And I was right.
And I think I’ll stick to news.
