An Odd Bobble

When the promotional schedule for the 2007 season was announced my kids gathered around to pick their favorite giveaway. I found it kind of sad that they were basing their game attendance upon what cool things they could get as they entered the stadium. My theory was to get them to the game regardless of the reasoning and maybe, just maybe they would become more knowledgeable baseball fans. The kids were extremely animated to find that there were so many bobble head games. I have to admit, I am partial to a good bobble head too so I was just about as excited. If for no other reason than to try and even out the number of Sedona Red versus purple and teal bobble heads that adorn the top of my desk. I have every bobble head that the Diamondbacks have ever given as a stadium giveaway and proudly display them in our living room (much to the chagrin of Trina I might add). She has gotten to the point where she tolerates them but has not yet accepted the bobble head as an appropriate interior decorating accessory. Give me enough time and enough bobble heads and I think I can get her to change her mind. With that confidence I was looking forward to tonight’s game as it meant my bobble head posse would be growing by one.
