Can someone explain this to me?

Right. Your "kids" were watching it. :P

Before there were Washington Nationals, there were the Washington Senators. That was the cap they wore in the 1960s.

The Nats would never wear that ugly logo today if they weren't trying to tie in with an older franchise.

Wait... Goth thinks an older logo is ugly? We totally agree?

Which sign of the impending apocalypse is this? :D

I know - I'm scared too... :P

Every era has good design and bad design. Although there was some very good design in the 1960s, this isn't it.

For a little additional background, this cap made its grand return at the press conference where DC's mayor announced that the Expos were moving.

All the local dignitaries were wearing one, and it immediately became the symbol for the new team. Which is why they shoehorned it into a clashing uniform -they were stuck with it.

The Nats' original uniforms were all angles and hard edges, beveled and squared, except for the cap logo.

They've since redesigned the uniform to better fit the cap. Which is something of a shame.

Far superior design, IMO.

Um, I agree with Goth on this too.

Surely the earth will implode later today.
