Another Nomo bobleheads would be cool. Maybe one that twists at the torso.

July 31 or August 30 has to be Gibson, right?

And, based on the Dodger-centric design, June 28 might as well be a Chase Field statue. I suspect however that it will be a dual-headed bobble of Frank's and Wilpon's lawyers.

They also need to intro a Mini Sirloin Bobble collection. Tiny little men with tiny little bobbling heads.

Orel, You got a bobblehead! Woohoo!

I'm assuming that May 29th will be an SoSG drinkfest at the park. Sign me up!

Ms. Stubbs is already jonesing for the Koufax bobble.

Fred's Brim said...

mmmm drinkfests

Every day is SoSG Drinkfest at the Yard!

But yeah, sounds like we need a pregame dustup for that epic bobble opportunity.

I'm still waiting for the SoSG Orel bobblehead.

Steve Sax said...

Keep waiting, Orel.

The prospect of a quad-bobblehead is awesome, but I fear it's going to be dumbed down / cost-reduced to Christmas-ornament size. That would be a bummer if each player was only as tall as a thimble.

Unless it was a quad-MSB bobble, which would be proportionally appropriate.

"I'm still waiting for the SoSG Orel bobblehead"

There are at least two double entendre opportunities in that phrase, but I'mma let it slide.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Now if there were a QuadSevens bobblehead, that would be something special.

Hot damn, that's a lot of tags.
