The bizarre and mind numbing news that came out of Notre Dame this week must have had promotions departments running wild.
The Florence Freedom announced Thursday that the team will hold a Manti Te’o girlfriend bobblehead night this summer. Perfect timing, clever, and creative. It’s great publicity for a Frontier League team that otherwise, doesn’t get a lot of hype or mention.

On Thursday, May 23 the Freedom will be giving away the illusive Manti Te’o Girlfriend Bobblehead to the first 1000 fans through the gates.
“This will be the best kind of bobblehead a fan could get,” Freedom General Manager Josh Anderson said. “Because now fans can make the bobblehead out to be whatever they want it to be.”
Yes Freedom fans, the boxes will be empty. But that’s where fan imagination can run wild and individual unique stories about what the bobblehead should really look like can begin.
To add to the imaginary fun, section 115 will be blocked and reserved only for fans to sit with their imaginary friends, girlfriends/boyfriends or spouses. There will also be a make pretend kiss cam, air guitar contest and an imaginary food fight outside the Airheads Kids Zone.
Fans are also encouraged to bring their real life significant others to the ballpark that night and enjoy $1 beer or $1 soda during this staple Thirsty Thursday promotion.
