Too funny ... check out what the St. Paul (Minnesota) Saints baseball club will be handing out to the first 2,500 fans at this Sunday's game. It's a bobblefoot, a not-too-subtle poke at disgraced Idaho Sen. Larry Craig, who was arrested last year in a men's room at the Minneapolis airport. The Saints definitely like to have fun. In addition to cheeky promotions, the team has a pig mascot that in 2008 will go by the name Boar-ack O-ham-a, succeeding 2007's Garrison Squeallor. Hat tip to A.K., who points out that the anniversary of Craig's arrest is coming right up, on June 11.
Just to fill out this post, I'll also note that minor league baseball season is drawing nigh in Idaho, too. Both the Boise Hawks (a Chicago Cubs affiliate) and the Idaho Falls Chukars (with ties to the Kansas City Royals) start their seasons at home on June 17, as do the Spokane Indians. There's no better way to spend a sultry summer night than sitting in the bleachers - in the shade along the third-base line, please - at the Hawks' Memorial Stadium, and I'm sure Idaho Falls and Spokane fans will say the same for their parks, too.
