Minneapolis Baseball Team Hands Out Larry Craig 'Bobblefoot'

Craig

The Minnesota minor league baseball team The St. Paul Saints is doing away with traditional "bobblehead" giveaways this weekend and handing out an homage to Idaho Senator Larry Craig, who as you well know was arrested in a local airport for tapping under the stall at an undercover cop.

The team is handing out "bobblefoot" knickknacks featuring a bathroom stall with a pair of feet, one of which is springloaded and 'taps'. The baseball team's press release claims that the item honors "National Tap Dance Day".

According to the Star-Tribune, "The team also takes pains to note: 'It doesn't matter if your tapping style is done with a 'wide stance' or is used as some sort of code.'"

  6. The Saints are the best. I love going to their games----they play because they love baseball vs. our other teams in Minnesota who play for the big money and prestige. The Saints are always running cool edgy promos just like this foot tapping promo, whereas the Twins, owned by that billionaire asshole Pohlad,just keep their hands out, looking for more public subsidies for a new stadium.
