Because I was so excited about the Potomac Nationals’ promised Wolf-a-rine Jayson Werth figurine giveaway thing, I went ahead and published something based only on the club’s mock-ups of the item.
I should have waited.
Because take a look at this thing.
To repeat, here was the club’s description:
“After the terrific reception to the Roger Bernadina ‘Shark-A-rine, which ended up on ESPN’s “Mike & Mike Show” during the 2013 season, the Potomac Nationals have piggybacked that concept with the Jayson Werth ‘Wolf-A-rine’ for the 2014 slate,” a spokesman explained via e-mail. “A half-man, half-wolf figurine rendering of the Washington Nationals’ hairiest slugger, the Wolf-A-rine is truly an exclusive giveaway, and Nats fans everywhere will be clawing to get one.”
The event is Saturday, August 16, which happens also to be fireworks night, back to school night, food truck night, kids run the bases night, scout night, and Star Wars night.
