The Milwaukee Brewers have announced their bobblehead giveaways for the upcoming season, and the selection of “stars” is a bit perplexing.
- May 3 – Ryan Braun
- May 31 – Trevor Hoffman
- Jun 28 – Jason Kendall
- Aug 30 – Jeff Suppan
- Jul 26 – Bratwurst
- Sep 20 – Doug Melvin, Brewers GM
As NQTC points out, all of the bobbles are white, including the sausage (Jason Kendall’s white, right?). Troubling coincidence, or nefarious prejudice in the heart of America?
More troubling is the general suckiness of the selections. Jason Kendall, Bratwurst and the general freaking manager ahead of Prince Fielder?
The only possible explanation is that in these tough economic times, the Brewers worried that they couldn’t afford all the bobble-plastic it would take to make Prince Fielder.
