Empty boxes part of Te'o girlfriend bobblehead night at Freedom game

FLORENCE, KY (FOX19) - 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."

The boxes will be empty, since the girlfriend never existed.

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.

Fans are also encouraged to bring their real life significant others to the ballpark that night and enjoy $1 beer or $1 soda during this staple Thirsty Thursday promotion.

The Freedom open the 2013 season on Thursday, May 16 at home against the River City Rascals.
