Smells like team spirit: Minor-league club unveils bacon hats, scratch-and-sniff shirts

Everything is better with bacon: pancakes, burgers, vegetables, clothing ...
Yeah, that's right. Clothing.
The Lehigh Valley IronPigs, the Triple-A affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies, revealed new bacon-themed uniforms Monday at www.smellthechange.com. These delicious new uniforms will not replace the team's primary uniforms, but will rather be a side dish that the team will wear on Saturdays.
The uniforms feature a bacon-strip logo on the cap, "Pigs" across the chest underlined in bacon, and bacon piping down the legs of the pants.
And that's not all. The team's online store also is offering "scratch-and-sniff" T-shirts that actually smell like bacon. Apparently the shirt will smell for up to 10 to 15 washes, so wash sparingly.
Mmm ... bacon ...
