I’ve never been much of a bobblehead collector. The first bobblehead I ever got was a Jermaine O’Neal model when he was playing with the Toronto Raptors. O’Neal was traded about a week later. The only other bobblehead I own is a Brandon Morrow one, which looks like a generic male action figure with no resemblance to the pitcher whatsoever. I’d tell you that I couldn’t care less about bobbleheads, but then the Oakland Athletics went and piqued my interest with an announcement that Coco Crisp’s bobblehead will do the Bernie.


The Bernie, of course, is a reference to the 1989 film “Weekend at Bernie’s”. The A’s adopted The Bernie as their team dance last season and we’re all better for it.

    I sold my Brandon Morrow bobblehead to a drunk guy on the street outside the stadium. the conversation went something like this:

    Drunk guy : Fuck bro! I can’t believe I didn’t get a bobble head. (A pair of slightly crossed eyes then spotted the desired box in my hands) I’ll give you twenty bucks for that bobble head.

    Me: Yup.

    Drunk guy: (Realizing it wasn’t worth $20) Shit.

    Then he handed me a $20 and I got street meat from the $3 sausage guy by the RBC on Front Street and a pitcher of beer. Fuck that was a great day!
