Anthony's analysis: Yes, it is true, I had no idea about the hat steal. A pretty girl at a bar once stole my hat and started asking me if she looked good in it. I got pretty pissed off, because I hate when anyone steals my hat, and I angrily stole it away from her. I essentially took it as a sign that the couple of minutes she had spent hitting me before were washed away.
Well, we had a pretty serious debate about the hat steal with a couple nimrods we lived with in Ann Arbor; and they all agreed the hat steal was at least 80% effective. Then, we were watching a Blind Date episode. And this douchebag on the show said something to the effect of, "I wasn't sure she liked me till she started taking my hat from me."
Yes, Chubbs 100% of hat steals he has finished the deal is correct. Although, he is like Dave Veres from a late 90's Cardinals team: 1 AB, 1 HIT. And yes, it was a single.
