About Jon
Thank You For Not ...

1) using profanity or any euphemisms for profanity
2) personally attacking other commenters
3) baiting other commenters
4) arguing for the sake of arguing
5) discussing politics
6) using hyperbole when something less will suffice
7) using sarcasm in a way that can be misinterpreted negatively
8) making the same point over and over again
9) typing "no-hitter" or "perfect game" to describe either in progress
10) being annoyed by the existence of this list
11) commenting under the obvious influence
12) claiming your opinion isn't allowed when it's just being disagreed with

My Vote Is for R.J. Reynolds

by Jon Weisman
Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

You can vote for the bobblehead that will be given away at Dodger Stadium on August 2 at Dodgers.com.

Amazingly, R.J. Reynolds is not on the ballot, nor Pedro Astacio, nor The Second Mike Ramsey. Has Manny Mota even been a bobblehead yet?

Of the listed nominees, I'd go with Russell Martin, though a Juan Pierre bobblehead would have plenty of support.

I want a Darren Dreifort bobble knee.

I also voted for Martin who will probably win in a landslide.

In Russ we trust.

Anyone care to direct me to the 2007 promotional calendar? I know its been posted at least twice in the forums before, its just hard to unearth.

I'm looking forward to a Gary Sheffield bobble wallet. It runs away from paternity suits, and demands to be refilled three minutes after you've left the ATM.

My Jeff Weaver bobblehead will be the second ugliest bobble head to Fernando Valenzuela's bobblehead.

Read that old post on Mike Ramsey and noticed that a Mr. Timmermann was influencing Dodger Thoughts even back then. Exactly how long has Bob held such power?

Do they have a bobble head that can support Pierre's head? If so I am going with that just to spite all of you. LOL

I am sure at least 15 out of 55 people will get "caught stealing" Pierre's bobblehead.

With great power comes great responsibility.

No fair, you can only vote with a CA address. So I put down my name and Greg Brock's address.

8 - I thought the hole point about Pierre was that his head was small - hence "plenty of support"

Well yeah Jon, but I was thinking of how small those legs, arms, neck and body must be and then can the head bobble with that type of support?

Should I be concerned that dodgers.com asks for all that information on a non-secure page? At least it should be https

13 That's how I found out Greg Brock's address.

11 - whole point, you dummy, not hole point. It's not a pencil sharpener.
2007-01-26 15:49:53

11 But that's a great idea. Combination bobble-head and pencil sharpener. It's gold!

Gimme my boy Martin! Pierre's the only other one that makes sense since he has a long-term contract, but I don't think that's one I would be proud to put on my bookcase.

My Cesar Isturis bobble-head is grounding out weakly on someone else's desk this weekend. They are replacing the carpet in my office and I had to clear everything out.

RJ!

You make my day every time you mention him.

10 Glad to help!

And I missed the entire bullet head thread! Who says work isn't occasionally worthwhile???

And I voted for Martin.

I want the two-headed Ramon Martinez bobble head doll. Also they could make the top deck a beach ball free zone and charge a few dollars more...(Scully can't see up there).
