America’s Pisstime

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.

The Saints are awesome. Their promotions and quirks are off the charts sometimes. Seriously, this is some good reading:

I love the Saints! Used to go to five or six of their games every year when I lived in the area. Beats hell out of watching games in the Metrodome (and I'm a Twins fan). Saw Bill Murray there a bunch of times; he is (was?) part owner.
