New York Mets are celebrating St. Patrick's Day with some cool hats (pic)

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, the New York Mets will be rocking some cool hats at spring training.

So if you’ve ever wanted to know what Mr. Met would look like with an orange beard and a Lucky the Leprechaun hat — that’s a hat being depicted on a hat, people. So meta! — well, behold:

While the green hats may just seem like a silly marketing stunt, they actually serve the practical purpose of protecting pinch runners.

(If you plan on partying in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, please drink responsibly. And don’t adopt some fake Irish accent for the night, because nobody thinks that is cool or funny.)
