Minor League Baseball Team to Host Manti Te’o Girlfriend Bobblehead Night Along With Other Imaginary Activities


Manti Te'o SpotlightWell here is one way for a baseball team to save money in its marketing budget — have a giveaway that consists of giving nothing away at all.

That’s exactly what one minor league team in the Frontier League is doing on Thursday. The Florence Freedom will welcome fans to their game against the Schaumburg Boomers with a bobblehead giveaway. The bobbleheads will be honoring Chargers linebacker Manti Te’o‘s fake girlfriend, Lennay Kekua.

“The collector’s edition bobblehead box will of course be empty,” according to the team’s website.

The team’s promotion Thursday night will also feature an air guitar contest, a pretend kiss cam, an imaginary food fight, and fans with imaginary friends, girlfriends/boyfriends or spouses will be encouraged to sit in a specific section.

That sounds like quite the night of imaginary fun.
