Memorial Day weekend 2002 vs. the Braves, I'll never forget it. I knew we would lose the game that night so I wanted to at least make sure I got my JB bobblehead. The franchise was so ignorant though they only handed out 10,000. Needless to say when I got there driving in from West Virginia there were at least 25,000 fans lined up at each gate at Rivorfront...however when they opened the gates NO ONE was standing in line in the middle. So I told my wife hey lets go through that one. As we were going through the gate everyone in those lines were screaming at us, but hey the gate was OPEN and no one was in it. My wife actually got attacked by some crazy old man that grabbed her arm and said you're not going in there, I was already in jumping up and down like an idiot saying I got it I got it! Eventually the old man turned loose and she got through and got hers, not before she started screaming at me saying she was going to sell her bobblehead! People were offering her up to 75.00 for it. Again like an idiot I said no that will be worth money save it for our kids. She said what about yours for the kids? I said like an idiot THATS MINE!!! Because of that game she hates bobblehead nights...although we have been back for Eric Davis, Barry Larkin, Bronson Arroyo, Tony Perez, and Joey Votto BH nights!
