Is That A Yes?

Bobble-heads get a bad rep. They're thrown into the ranks of Pez dispensers and velvet Elvis'. Well, no more. I've recently discovered bobble-heads have been nodding on dashboards for nearly as long as the teams which adorn their jerseys have been tossing pig skins and smacking leather balls with timber. Yes, these little constantly agreeing mascots have been inextricably intertwined with sports teams and their fans since before Elvis AND Pez (1927). Okay, maybe not, but I really don't care about the history of bobble-heads, just the fact that I now seem to be slightly obsessed with these old ones from the 1960s. Do you agree with me? You do? Yeah? Still? Okay. That's enough.
