Yes, I realize entertainers likely aren’t using the Curly W to state their baseball preferences as much as they’re using it to reference their West-Coast roots. So it has always been, and so it shall always be.

Still, every time Ice Cube shows up on a stage at South By Southwest, wearing a bejeweled Nats Curly W New Era lid, I consider it my sacred duty to pass along images of said bejeweled Curly W.

Maybe it’s not as great as a Curly W on the back of a Kenyan mini-bus or a Curly W on reggae artist Gyption or a Curly W on Kevin Durant’s belly, but it’s still pretty notable.
