New Era Releases “Team Described” Red Sox Cap With Paul Revere and A Lobster Roll On It

The Homie Cast

People that know me know that I’m a huge lobster roll guy.

So when even I think these caps look like dogshit, you know they’re really horrendous. Whoever designed these needs to find a new profession. Huge fail.

I haven’t seen any Snowies yet this winter on Cape Ann; there simply seem to be fewer that migrated to our region than there were several years ago when Hedwig was the star of the backshore.

These Snowy Owl photos were taken earlier in the month at Parker River. The dirt road, the one that begins after the Hellcat Trail, has reopened, although I wouldn’t recommend going there on the weekends, much better to go during the week. There are so many photographers and owl lovers on the weekends, especially in the afternoon, that it has become really disruptive to the owls, both the Snowies and Short-eared. Even though folks are very respectful and (most) stay on the road, the Short-eared Owls aren’t catching much food, as far as I can observe, when there are great crowds chasing them up and down the road.

Interesting clouds over Kettle Island

Went for a walk to Ocean Lawn on Sunday.  It was so beautiful outside and of course the Ocean Lawn is amazing.  For more information on Coolidge Reservation please follow the link below:


New Era has apparently released a new set of “Team Describe” hats for Major League Baseball. Here’s the Red Sox design. Paul Revere (not George Washington) and a lobster roll…… what do you think?

Here’s a link for the other teams and additional info

Gloucester’s amazing artist Amy Kerr. Love the name of this article.

Next the exhibit will travel to UMass Amherst and then the State House in May. The original series of sixteen mostly Cape Ann subjects is currently on display at Brattleboro Memorial Hospital until April.
