The Nationals are giving away Denard Span bobbleheads to the first 25,000 fans at Sunday’s game against the Brewers. They look pretty sharp.

Earlier today, the team gave fans a chance to score two tickets to Sunday’s game (and a pair of bobbleheads) by posting their best #Spanning photos to Instagram. (#Spanning, for the uninitiated, is the hashtag used to describe Span, often in the context of his ability to span the outfield with ease during the span of a game.)

The #Spanning movement hasn’t reached the same fervor as #Griffining did two years ago, but there were some inspired submissions from Nats fans. Here are the five winners, as chosen by the Nationals:

And here are a few more of our favorites.
