Latest from the NFL Marketing Machine: New Draft Day HatsSteve Balestrieri - PatsFans.com

The intrepid warriors at 345 Park Avenue have apparently been busy the last few months. Moving on from their color rush uniform campaign that left television viewers temporarily blinded, the quest for yet more revenue from apparel sales has ventured onward. Now it is new and unique hats for all 32 teams, to first be worn in public at the upcoming draft.

The sneak preview was provided to Maxim magazine, known for its titillating photo galleries and glamorous Hollywood celebrity profiles.

I suppose it could be worse. At least the Patriot hats aren’t as bad as Pittsburgh’s.
