Today I had four errands to run around Barcelona--pick up something here, drop off something there, do a private class, etc. I wore my Röyals cap on the streets, the bus, the subway, only taking it off when indoors (as you guys ought to know, it's poor manners to wear a hat or cap indoors). This is a sacrifice for me as I am somewhat class-conscious. My close family worked hard to become respectable middle-class folks, because most of the rest of us is rednecks. Wearing an American baseball cap (or imitation thereof) in public is considered distinctly "Jersey Shore" in Barcelona. Lots of people do it, but none of them have been to college and a good few of them flunked out of high school. So I committed self-humiliation for our team, just in the hope it might prove to be a lucky charm. What are you willing to do?
