And Independent (by definition, not affiliated with MLB) league baseball team to have Manti Te’o girlfriend bobblehead giveaway. And what, pray tell, will you find in the box? Nothing, of course, it’s an empty box. The Frontier League Florence (KY) Freedom have announced the blockbuster event for May 23. I’d recommend buying tickets now, because Section 115 will not be for sale, but instead reserved for those who want to share private (and invisible) moments with their imaginary significant other. Imaginary beer is free, but the real kind only costs $1 as part of the “usual” Thirsty Thursday promotion.
I like how the press release emphasizes there will be five “real life” bobblehead giveaways during the season (are bobbleheads real life anyway, or are we really blurring the lines here).
Perhaps the last time the Freedom were in the news was when Pete Rose Jr. was hired to manage for one brief game in 2004, then later as hitting coach in 2010.
And it’s a shame the team is going cheap and only giving away the Te’o girlfriend bobbleheads to the first 1000 fans, you figure they could afford to give it to every adult, child, and imaginary companion in attendance.
