When You Can't Find What You're Looking For
Mind you, this is for a kid, so the goal was to get a child sized hat. Here in the land of Sunshine, where the Gators are considered the end-all and be-all of college sports, it's hard for 'Noles fans to get an equivalent amount of gear for their team. Heck, outside of Tampa, there's my alma mater's gear, but the selection pales in comparison to the quantity of royal blue and orange items.
So, I went out in search of a burgundy and tan hat, preferably with the Seminole Indian on it, preferably kid sized. Instead, I found an incredible amount of stuff that says FSU with that school's colors, one with an arrowhead and even more that just were emblazoned "Florida State" in huge type, and "Seminoles" slightly smaller.
I thought my school's team didn't get much respect around here, but the little guy in all this (I think FSU's enrollment is about 1/3 either UF or USF) has an ego problem, if you were to base it merely on the way the name of the school has to be front and center!
Anyway, I bought the child a burgundy hat with an arrowhead, adult small, and I'm hoping it fits-but I'm still looking.
While I'm at it, I need to scare up a USF onsie for my new nephew. At least I know I'll find those on campus...
