I want one! I want one!
From the Minneapolis Star Tribune:
The St. Paul Saints, long known for offbeat, sometimes edgy, promotions, have come up with a real doozy for this Sunday’s game. While lots of sports franchises hand out bobblehead dolls, usually depicting their players, the Saints are handing out 2,500 “bobblefoot” knicknacks.
The keepsakes consist of a miniature bathroom stall with a couple of lower legs and feet. One of the feet is springloaded and “taps,” which, the Saints’ press release says, is in honor of National Tap Dance Day.
The team also takes pains to note: “It doesn’t matter if your tapping style is done with a ‘wide stance’ or is used as some sort of code.”
U.S. Sen. Larry “Wide Stance” Craig (R-Idablow), of course, was arrested after he tapped his foot at the wrong stallmate in a toilet at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. Distributing “keepsakes” that invoke a disgraced senator, anonymous sex, and GOP hypocrisy… well, I guess I’m a Saints fan now.
