Strangest Bobblehead of 2009: Shin Soo Choo Loves the 80's


This doesn't particularly qualify as news, but I was glancing through the Tribe's promotional schedule for this year and came across the June 13th game against the Cardinals when fans will receive this Shin Soo Choo bobblehead.

Complete with a white suit, Simon Says four-color base, and black shades, Shin Soo, for some reason that I can not fully understand, is the smiling visage of the 1980's.

The face is a bit off, and the hair color seems a bit strange compared to Choo's true locks. And, actually, that looks a helluva lot more like Delonte West than Choo.


For the record, the Tribe will complete the 80's theme by showing Major League after the game. Why they didn't schedule the Rick Vaughn "Wild Thing" bobblehead to coincide with that night escapes me. You can grab that one two days later when the Tribe takes on the Brewers.
