Downtown Newburyport, MA
Standing in front of the library, waiting for the doors to open first thing in the morning, I noticed two guys shoveling snow. One guy says to the other, "That's some UGLY hat you got on." This caught my attention, so I listened while they argued for a good five minutes about the Red Sox and Yankees. Turns out they are good friends, both having grown up in Newburyport. Now they both work for the city. They've been enjoying this argument for many years. Mike is the Red Sox fan; John is the one with the ugly hat.
