Minor League franchise in Kentucky to honor Manti Te'o girlfriend hoax with a bobblehead promotion.


The Manti Te'o "Catfishgate" scandal is giving a minor league baseball franchise in Florence, Kentucky a chance to do what minor league sports franchises do best: exploit current events with insane promotions to sell tickets and get publicity.   The Florence Freedom, an independent member of the Frontier League has declared May 23 "Manti Te'o Girlfriend Bobblehead Day." The team plans to hand out 1,000 bobblehead boxes to honor Te'o's imaginary lover - 1,000 empty boxes.

But wait, there's still more insanity for this promotion. There will be an air guitar contest, an imaginary food fight, and a section where fan being their own imaginary significant others with them. And the pièce de résistance to top everything off, a special Kiss Cam where fans can pucker up with their imaginary lovers.

Of by May 23, this whole debacle will have probably blown over, but that's never stopped a minor league team before.
