As you may have heard, the Orioles' Double A affiliate, the Bowie Baysox, is giving away two bobbleheads of Gov. Larry Hogan to the first 1,000 fans in the gates (18 or older) for the team's game against the Erie SeaWolves on July 24.
One has hair and one does not, a nod to Hogan's battle with Stage 3 non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. The one that runs out first will win the "Bobblection." Perhaps the results will have some influence on whether or not Hogan decides to stay bald?
Baysox players will also wear green jerseys to spread awareness, and the jerseys will be auctioned off to benefit a cancer charity.
We commend both the Baysox for this promotion and Hogan for his courageous and victorious fight with cancer.
And we are asking you, the reader, to secure us one of these bobbleheads so we can turn it into a Boss Hög bobblehead, which we will then sacrifice to the tronc gods to make humourous videos.
Surely you remember Boss Hög, our "Dukes of Hazzard"-referencing caricature of the governor after he nixed the Red Line project. We want to bring him back!
So once we receive one of the Hogan bobbleheads, our talented creative team will paint his suit white—and add realistic hair, if we get a bald one—and affix a cowboy hat on his head. Then the staff of City Paper will send Boss Hög on video adventures. We promise (hope?) they'll be entertaining.
Thanks in advance.
