Short Homestand, but good times...

As Lizziebeth so astutely observed, it looks like the Huddy bobblehead does have wrist tattoos -- or at least, smudges of ink where tattoos would be on the real guy. Can you imagine the Pete Moylan bobblehead? They'd have it wearing long sleeves so they wouldn't have to draw the tats!

Also, check out the thickness of Huddy's legs -- they're thicker than the ones on Baby's bobblehead! Maybe it's the white-pant illusion...

Anyway, check out the other goodies for the mid-week games this week:

Fans can pick up coupons for products including Kleenex facial tissue, Cottonelle bath tissue, and Huggies diapers at the Cottonelle Bath Tissue Table in the Green Parking Lot at the corner of Hank Aaron Drive and Ralph David Abernathy Blvd.

I'll be there on Thursday to see Charlie. Hopefully having his weaknesses splashed in the media won't beat him down too much. (Disclaimer: Articles written by Bowman should be read carefully to separate fact from opinion. He does not write from the POV of an impartial observer, as I think he should -- his personal opinion taints every article he writes, and sometimes his own predictions are mixed in with quotes from Braves management, when in fact they're pure speculation on his part...and have been very wrong in the past.)

Love you, Charlie! *hug*

Standing 6-foot-4 and weighing close to 200 pounds, Morton has a frame that makes scouts salivate.

Yeah. "Scouts." ;)

I want one :). Man, they need to have a Moylan Bobblehead Night :). I'd be the first one in the park. Regardless of whether or not I was missing school ;)

That's right, Crista. I like a girl who has her priorities in line. ;)
