Here's an item you'll never, ever, ever see on my annual Christmas List
: A life-sized Kobe Bryant bobblehead doll. I am not making this up
. For a mere $13,000. That's actually cheaper than the Shaq, Allen Iverson and Yao Ming life-sizers they came out with a few years ago. Those babies were $27,000 each
. I guess the economy is even affecting the life-sized bobblehead market.
Anyway, the Kobe-doll is available for pre-order and will be shipped out in September. I wonder if you can order one that's fitted with a custom t-shirt

(The implications of a "life-sized" Yao bobblehead are boggling. Only he himself could bobble it!)
I know you've got Basketbawful and By the Horns and you need to eat and sleep and stuff, but there's some great material that's basically writing itself out there:
-Jerry Jones cited concerns that there "weren't enough balls to go around" as one reason for letting T.O. go to Buffalo
-Ryan Leaf finally gave himself up on drug/theft charges; couldn't even hang onto a QB coach job at a no-name D-3 university. The failboat steams ahead!
FOOT-BAW-FUL!!! FOOT-BAW-FUL!!! FOOT-BAW-FUL!!!
I kid, I kid, this bobblehead was news in the blogocube like 5 days ago and has been spreading like wildfire.
I bet that doll makes it on the next sequel of Puppetmaster.
