    FB pics will actually work fine IF you copy the URL of the image from the "download" link on your FB album.

    Yeah, it's one of the stupider rules. Mike Nolan got permission to wear a suit back in 2006, but for only two games of the season.

    That hat is in great shape. Would look great at a Bears home game.

    Sell it. As I mentioned earlier, Graham over at Optimo might even be interested in a buying or trading for it. (I can see that on display at his shop or in any number of sports bars around the city.) In any event I'm sure there would be a pretty strong market for it among Bear fans. But hey, it's your hat..................

    Well I took the hat over to Optimo and had them put a blue band on it and now I am not happy with how it looks so i will have them put the rope back on it so that I can sell it. =/

    Yes it is more valuable to someone original than with a ribbon. That style of hat works well with a rope hat band. A german alps style of hat.
