This is entirely college basketball related, for after one day, NBC4's Lindsay Czarniak is leading the WaPo celebrity bracket pool challenge. Well, she's tied with Byron Mouton and Kevin Harvick, anyhow, barely ahead of acknowledged bracket expert Dan Steinberg.
But that merely provides the jumping off point for this piece of groundbreaking news, which comes courtesy of Reader Kevin: on July 21, 2008, the Bowie Baysox are having Lindsay Czarniak Bobblehead Night. Brilliant, just brilliant. The eBays will be working extra time that night.
Other scheduled Baysox promotional nights? World Record Kazoo Attempt, Funky Feat Night, Pat Sajak Day (also featuring a Pat Sajak bobblehead), Soap Opera Night (featuring some guy I've never heard of--Walt Wiley/Jackson Montgomery--from some show I've never watched), Jamaican Me Crazy! Night, National Gorgeous Grandma Night, and Adam Loewen Bobblehead Night.
I hate to say it, and there's still time for the Nats to respond, but right now the three-bobblehead-nighted Baysox have completely trumped the local big-league club for best bobblehead night promotions of the year, even bearing in mind the Nats' Dmitri Young night. Here's hoping the Nats respond in the only acceptable manner: with Russ Thaler Bobblehead Night.
