Happy Veterans Day!

Before we headed to Texas a couple of weeks ago, I decided I needed a new cowboy hat. And a new pair of jeans, and a new Elliott Sadler t-shirt, and some new Nikes. Unfortunately, I only had enough money for the hat. But isn't it pretty? It's from Toby Keith's line of hats.

If you're unfamiliar with Toby Keith, he's a country music artist whose hits include An American Soldier and Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue. He sings--and speaks--openly about patriotism, supporting America, and having faith in the United States. He's probably most famous for feuding with Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks. Natalie said Toby's Angry American song was ignorant and Toby implied that Natalie was a commie heathen. He really, really likes America.

As a matter of fact, I could've bought his Toyo Outback Hat, a camouflage hat with the USA flag on the side. It's described as "patriotism, pure and simple." I instead went with the Seagrass Western, "good-looking, all-American, and a whole lotta fun." Yep. That Toby Keith, he's all about Amer--hey, what's this?
Ummm....Toby?

  1. Well he did say "im not as good as I once was" maybe he was referring to his manufacturing standards.

  3. man, that blows..

    I'm not a country music fan, but I'm a fan of hats and that's a cute hat. Too bad he had to sell out like that.

    I say rip the tag off and stick a little flag in there.

    Yeah, kinda defeats the purpose, doesn't it? You'd think they'd have put that part of it together. Well done.

  11. Okay, you made me crack up! It is so funny that he is so gungho about our dear country and the hats are made in China. WTH? He needs to get it together.
