Last season, the Okland A’s rode their laid-back style all the way to an AL West division title and their first playoff appearance since 2006. No team in the league appeared to have more fun down the stretch than the A’s, and it’s one of the main reasons their young roster was able to find so much success.
During their improbable run, Coco Crisp introduced the “Bernie Lean” to his A’s teammates. As you likely know, the “Bernie Lean” is a dance that started from the movie “Weekend at Bernie’s.” There have been several YouTube videos featuring people doing the bizarre dance and the A’s even made their own video with it. Now, there is a bobblehead version of the dance. The A’s plan to give these bad boys away to their first 10,000 fans before their game on June 29.

I guess that’s more of a bobblebody than a bobblehead, but either way I’m a fan. In an era where teams give away bobbleheads of players that aren’t on their team anymore and can’t even manage to accurately depict their own pitchers, it’s refreshing to see a new idea. I give the A’s an A (see what I did there?) for creativity.
