Someone must know, and I've been meaning to ask for quite some time...what's with the orange hat with the chinese symbol? What does it mean? Where is it from? Why does he wear it?

I can't find it online, but it's not the Mets!

Garth told us it's a OSU hat..

I guess they embroider the chinese/japanese letters for OSU on the cap to be different.

Hope that helps...

The symbol means Red., but when you where is on a person it becomes that person, so it would mean Brooks.
The college part would work also, because it was a possession of the college OSU, so it would mean ownership OSU.

I asked my daughter, and she works with a man that reads and speaks chinese.
So Moni he was correct., but now if it is on his head it means Brooks.

College merchandise seems to change every season depending on what the IN thing is at the time.

I found a place that sells the Chinese Hats, for every sport... but OSU's isn't one of the college teams listed :(

True, but you posted the link to the official site so I was referring to that link and most school bookstores change merchandise quite a bit.

here's the link to the hat place I found:

As for "in season" it is IN SEASON right now..

I think what PJ is referring to is that the merchandise changes every year, just depending on styles. They stopped selling the chinese character hats at our school, even though we still are "in season"

Maybe I'm just crazy, but I can't imagine why anyone would WANT a bunch of Chinese letters that no one can read on their head.

I'm sure the powers that be at OSU grumble every time they see that hat on his head. why can't he just wear the letters? what's wrong with the mascot? another free advertising opportunity missed!

Garth always being diffcult what couldn't he just get the nice black OSU hat, I think he wants to give us stuff to do, now that he isn't on the road, like figure out what the hats mean.

oh Garth --- #-o

Hi Flutterby98,

ProducerJ and I really like that hat the best too! We have a game that we play..

When we are looking through Garth Photo Albums which we often do when we have Garthy get togethers with our other Garth buds.. we have to drink each time we see a picture of Garth in a Chris Ledoux hat!

One night we were surfing the net and as I remember we got quite giddy that night! LOL

LOL, Jen! I wouldn't put it past the man to do that. He must get a laugh out of the things we do sometimes!

Now if only we could get ahold of that Chris LeDoux hat!

Hey Lisa - at one time, fan club members could get the Chris LeDoux hats. At least that's what a girl in the CL fan club told Jen and I. They were supposed to be available in a variety of colors. I have a green version that Chris autographed, the tan one is a much nicer looking hat, IMHO.
Is no one here in the Chris LeDoux fan club???

On CL's website there is a merchandise page, but the only hat on there is "sold out" - it's hard to tell but it doesn't look like exactly the same one Garth used to wear...

Personally, when, and if, I want to wear a "Garth" hat, I wear one of Garth's official hats. I have the last tour hat and matching black wool jacket with the "circle g" on them. Those are the ones I wear most often. I have a collection of official hats with "Garth Brooks" on them, but I rarely wear those because I am keeping them for my collection. I finally did get a black "Scarecrow" hat and matching jacket to add to my collection.

Jason, you happen to have one of the few "Garth" hats that I wasn't able to get for my collection. I mostly have the black hats, including a "Ropin' the Wind" hat, and a couple of the tan ones with black bills. I was also trying to get the black hat with the blue bill to wear with my black satin Garth jacket that is embroidered in blue.

ya always have to buy 144 of any sports thing... Jerseys.. anything.. for them to make it...

I dunno why 144 is a popular number.

Maybe because they sell things by the gross (12 dozen).
