Are you ready to ease back in your Dodgers inflatable chair, feet resting on your Dodgers welcome mat, head beneath your Dodgers pennant (which is right next to your Yasiel Puig Fathead), wearing your Dodgers hoodie, listening to Vin Scully on your portable Dodgers speaker (or headphones), all while clutching your Dodgers autograph baseball in one hand and tapping one of your new Dodgers bobbleheads with the other?
It’s all so possible. You don’t need an app to imagine that, the Dodgers will sell you a special mini plan.
That’s right, promotional lovers, the Dodgers have announced their giveaways for the 2014 season. And they’re not exactly backing off of last season’s upgraded efforts.
Next season’s bobbleheads include Clayton Kershaw, Hyun-Jun Ryu, Zack Greinke, Pee Wee Reese and Roy Campanella, Tommy Lasorda (again), Magic Johnson, 30-homer group Dusty Baker, Steve Garvey, Reggie Smith and Ron Cey, Babe Ruth (he was a Brooklyn first-base coach), Puig and one to be determined by fan vote.
I realize you would like to vote for your favorite sports writer for the latter bobblehead, but Dylan Hernandez could use the ego boost. Although a bobblehead of Jamie McCourt crushing grapes does sound intriguing.
Friday night fireworks and the Sunday Viva Los Dodgers will return, as will the Hello Kitty mini bobblehead, and everybody’s favorite, the sleeved blanket.
The new welcome mat will be offered April 18 when the Dodgers play host to … the Arizona Diamondbacks. Who says front office types have no sense of humor? In addition to the mini bobblehead, there will be another Hello Kitty item, a Puig Fathead and an unspecified Vin Scully 65th anniversary commemorative item.
