TWITTER REAX: SI.com's Jimmy Traina wrote, "Riots breaking out at Yankee Stadium over a dumb bobblehead doll is the perfect ending to this embarrassing season." "The Dan Patrick Show" Exec Producer Paul Pabst wrote, "Makes sense that on Mo Rivera bobblehead night, the bobbleheads don't show up until the 9th inning." CBS Sports Radio's Jim Rome wrote, "Nothing like a bunch of adults freaking out over not getting a bobblehead. I'm sure the Yanks will make it right on Rivera foam finger nite."
WHAT, NO JOE SHLABOTNIK? In N.Y., Matt Flegenheimer notes the Yankees tonight will mark their "penultimate regular-season home game with an atypical giveaway for the first 18,000 fans who arrive: a bobblehead doll, honoring not one of its star-crossed players" but "Peanuts" character Charlie Brown. The team announced in August that Charlie Brown "would replace Snoopy on the 'promotional bobblehead roster' after several years of Snoopy-related giveaways" (N.Y. TIMES, 9/25).
