A minor league baseball team has Manti Te'o jokes

US PRESSWIRE

The Florence Freedom are giving away bobbleheads for Manti Te'o's girlfriend, because of course they are.

Have you heard of the Florence Freedom?

Probably not, right?

Well that's why they do things like this, where they send out a zany press release to capitalize on some national story and get some publicity for their minor league baseball team in Kentucky:

FLORENCE, KY - The Florence Freedom are excited to announce one of giveaways fans can look forward to during the 2013 season at UC Health Stadium.

On Thursday, May 23 the Freedom will be giving away the Manti Te'o Girlfriend Bobblehead to the first 1000 fans through the gates.

"This will be the best kind of bobblehead a fan could get," Freedom General Manager Josh Anderson said. "Because now fans can make the bobblehead out to be whatever they want it to be."

Yes Freedom fans, the boxes will be empty. But that's where fan imagination can run wild and individual unique stories about what the bobblehead should really look like can begin.

To add to the imaginary fun, section 115 will be blocked and reserved only for fans to sit with their imaginary friends, girlfriends/boyfriends or spouses. There will also be a make pretend kiss cam, air guitar contest and an imaginary food fight outside the Airheads Kids Zone.

And ... There you go. The Florence Freedom exist!
