Four years ago I diaried about an event that would prove to be a harbinger of things to come: Bobblection 2008. At the time, the St. Louis Cardinals Single-A affiliate Quad Cities River Bandits held their first ever Bobblehead election and then Senator Barack Obama, like he would a mere three months later, defeated John McCain in a landslide.
Tonight: Round two.
I realize my title gives away the outcome, but follow me past the squiggle for the pics and details.
So here's the deal: the first 500 fans in attendance got to cast their vote by choosing which bobblehead they wanted - President Obama or Mitt Romney. Game time was at 5:00 against the Oakland A's affiliate Burlington Bees so we made sure to arrive at Modern Woodmen Park in Davenport, IA, plenty early. 3:00 seemed appropriate.
Once all four of us had cast our votes by selecting our bobbleheads, we went to find our seats.
