Phillies 2008 Promotions - Part 2

Ruben Amaro Jr. Bobble Head Doll - The first bobble-head that will not move from side to side, but only up and down, in honor of the Phils ultimate yes-man, Little Rube.

Ed Wade Bobble Head Doll - This doll is being sponsored by the American Association of People with Disabilities. Says AAPD president and CEO Hugh Spanckoh, "Mr. Wade has shown all people with disabilities, especially those with severe mental impairments, that you can attain high ranking, well paying jobs with major corporations and organizations. We feel that sponsoring a doll with an oversized head for a man with a pea-sized brain is a fitting, ironic tribute."


Matt Smith's 4-Balls Fund - The Phillies go charitable this night, as they will donate $10,000 to Matt Smith's 4-Balls Fund each time a Phillies pitcher walks a batter. The 4-Ball Fund, which is modeled after the very successful Four Diamonds Fund for childhood cancer research, raises money to support investigation into treatment options for men who have double testicles. A noble cause indeed.

WWJDD Night - In "What Would JD Do Night," fans can pose philosophical or ethical questions, to be answered in between innings by bullpen pundit, JD Durbin. Only a man who goes to parties with a cooler covering his junk and a myspace.com page with this cool of a name, is qualified to answer your questions.

Paul Lo Duca Toilet Paper Night - Each square of paper has a picture of phan phavorite Paul Lo Duca. Fans can choose with or without mustache...

Do you guys have jobs? I think you have waaaaaaaaaaaay too much time on your hands.

Its tempting to get season tickets just to recieve all of these give aways.

GM-Carson said...

Yes, we each have jobs. We're just creative like that.

I want my Lo Duca toilet paper without mustache...too much grit on the bunghole otherwise.

Bob D said...

Kris Benson signing with Phils appears imminent. I like the idea of having him as an option. low risk/high reward. We always seem to need an extra few starters at some point during the season.

GM-Carson said...

The Phils want it to be a minor league deal while Benson wants a guaranteed MLB deal. I want him, but he's far from a sure thing so a minore league deal would be ideal.

I still think we can get Lohse. It's almost spring, he needs to sign somewhere soon.

The Lo Duca promotion is quite apropos, considering the guy is a major league asswipe.

GM-Carson said...

I want to go to a game when the Nationals are in town just so I can boo the crap outta LoDuca...I detest him!

I was listening to some of the Clemens/McNamee congressional hearing on XM, pretty entertaining stuff. McNamee was getting a new one ripped and Clemens was smelling like roses.

Kris Benson has signed a minor league deal...about damn time!

Bri said...

How about a bobble head of Bensons wife in a bikini shaking that THANG.

Jacobin said...

That's a good suggestion. I wouldn't mind seeing Anna Benson's head bobble.

Bri said...

So you know about all the groups in the stands. Last year my buddy came up with few but never acted upon them. Hamels Mammals. He said we could all dress up as any animal. Or Tadahitos Burritos. Now this steemed controversy, as we didnt feel it was right to cross the two ethnic boundaries, which have no correlation whatsoever.
