The Twelve Days of 1991 Twins Bobblemas

About a week ago, Big League Stew posted a video a Cincinnati Reds fan had made of his Chris Sabo bobblehead doll rotating on a platform to Mannheim Steamroller. My first thought? That's pretty lame and I can do way better -- the bobblehead isn't even bobbling its head! Plus, I bet I can do more than one doll at a time.

And so, two MIT engineers (i.e. me and a friend) designed a platform for bobbling the heads and with a green flannel sheet and some cotton balls, we had a snowy scene laid out on the platform. After a few tests, we chose five representatives from the 1991 Twins based who bobbled well together: Kirby Puckett, Kent Hrbek, Dan Gladden, Jack Morris, and Tom Kelly... and a cameo from a guy who was just getting his cup of coffee in '91, but clearly wanted to play for the Twins even then.

I put it to music, not by ripping off Mannheim Steamroller, but by writing my own parody of the Twelve Days of Christmas, 1991 Twins style. No, it really doesn't make any sense... this is just what happens when I get some time off and start implementing my silly whims. Enjoy, and happy holidays!
