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.
