Is this the most frightening giveaway sports has ever seen? What ever happened to the traditional bobbblehead? Is that too boring now? According to Rays Index, the Rays will be giving away this creepy Don Zimmer bear on June 29. They are giving away Joe Maddon, Flash Jennings, and Matt Moore bobbleheads at other points throughout the season, so maybe the Rays marketing department didn’t want to overdo it.
They should have overdone it. What are people supposed to do with these things? I can’t imagine a parent in America that would give this to their child. I certainly wouldn’t want my kid looking at this thing before he or she went to bed at night. If they’re looking for creativity, the Rays should take some pointers from the Memphis Grizzlies. They had the funniest giveaway of the year on Valentine’s Day.
