July 4th is Jay Bruce Bobblehead Night

We’re not too happy about having to miss out on this one. Jay Bruce’s first bobblehead giveaway will be awarded to the first 30,000 fans in attendance at this Saturday’s afternoon game against the St. Louis Cardinals.

If we didn’t have a wedding to go to in Indiana, we’d surely be on hand for this. Instead, we’ll hope for the game to make National TV to see if the Reds can put together an initial winning record on Bruce’s bobblehead night.

Reminds us of Adam Dunn’s first bobblehead night in September 2002 at old Riverfront/Cinergy Field. Arrived at the stadium a bit early (like 1:00 PM). It was our first bobblehead night. We didn’t want to miss out. It wasn’t quite that big of a deal. No need to camp out. Our old Ford Explorer broke down. Didn’t get home until 4 in the morning. Fun times.
