Candace Parker bobbleheads!

An email to Sparks season ticket holders this afternoon indicates they’ll be giving out Candace Parker bobbleheads at the July 3 game. I am SO excited!! Haven’t seen a bobblehead giveaway at a game in YEARS! And it’s a CP bobblehead, to boot.

It seems Sparks management heard us, because the email says they’ll be giving away foam fingers and schedule magnets on opening weekend (Memorial Day weekend), too.

*Jumping up and down*

It reminds me of the old days of the WNBA.

Check out this schedule: every game has a theme night, and there are four giveaways:

Line 1 – Date
Line 2 – Opponent

I’m not going to Thursday’s draft lunch, as it costs at least $20. But the Sparks’ email is intriguing. They have a team picture that includes Vanessa Hayden, Shannon Bobbitt, Candace Parker, Marie Ferdinand-Harris, Lindsay Wisdom-Hylton, Tina Thompson, Betty Lennox, Delisha Milton-Jones and Noelle Quinn. There are four figures in the picture who have been blacked out, but they’re wearing the following numbers: 8, 12, 20 and 32.

What’s that mean?
