Not removing my hat during a football game
I went to the Packers/Bears game today. COLD COLD COLD!!! I had a skullcap and hoodie on. The national anthem started and i didnt take my hat off. A older gentlemen behind me hit me on the shoulder and told me to take it off. I refused. I didnt really realize how much "of an issue" it is to people. I didnt realize there is editque for hats, i mean, its a hat!
On the drive home my friend and I got into a argument as to why i didnt. The reasons i said were 1. Its cold! 2. Its like a sardine can, cant put your hands above your head, 3. its a hat! He says i hate my country because of it, tho i took up collections around to give to the 911 widows. When i called him and told him what was going on on 911, when went back to sleep.
I just did some research as to why men do (but women dont) have to take there hats off in many difference scenarios.
My big qustion is what difference does it make if i do or dont? I am no more or less patriotic or an american cuz i didnt do it (which normally I do) because of the terms listed above. I started to but stopped cuz i couldnt move and it was almost over.
I can praise america While wearing a hat, its just fabric. I dont disrespect them by not taking it off because it is an atrical of clothing.
It will be harsh but what say you?
Life is Good, Life is Great
