We'll not fade out too soon
Not in this finest hour
Whistle your favourite tune
We'll send a card and flower
Saying

It's a mistake, it's a mistake
It's a mistake, it's a mistake

You know somehow that a few of them at least will get out. I went to the Peoria Chiefs game yesterday through work. $6 tickets, sat in great seats, and got a quality bobblehead. Wish the Sox still had some of these.

I'm sure they have thousands of sosa bobbleheads they can give away too

Heard about this yesterday. I looked it up on their promotions and here is (I guess) what they're supposed to look. (but you have to go on two different days to get the 2 guys)

But what I don't get is:
1st 20,000 fans
21 & over
Sponsored by Old Bay Seasoning

Can't figure out why they'd have a bobblehead day (or 2) for ONLY people 21 & over. Especially when the sponsor is a seasoning product.

Possibly for the marketing that they want to reach as many people over 21 as possible (the people likely to buy their product). Some companies don't care and will sponsor stuff for all ages, but it's one reason why beer brands don't do promotions for kids.

Last year I received a Miguel Tejada Bobblehead at Camden from the same sponsor. I don't remember if it was for adults only. The doll was dark skinned but looks more like Nipsey Russell than it does Miguel Tejada.

The bobblehead doll was ugly. How ugly was it?
The bobblehead doll was so ugly, the child called it a "blank".
