A couple of days ago, we asked you to share your best giveaway ideas for the 2017 promotional schedule... and you had a lot of ideas.
Let’s take a look at some of the best.
This idea that the Nationals would actually be smart to consider:
@WKSideofNats @federalbaseball A Nationals coloring book for adults. Coloring therapy for slump-related stress.— Brad Bucher (@CountBracula) January 15, 2017
If you didn’t know, adult coloring books are a real thing now, and a pretty popular thing at that. What could be more stress relieving than coloring in the red and blue piping on Bryce Harper’s jersey?
This idea that taps into one of the weirdest moments in the Nationals’ history:
@WKSideofNats @federalbaseball Rally pigeons. Stuffed ones of course. It would be fun for the whole stadium to have them— Kathi Jansen (@kathijan) January 15, 2017
In case you missed it, the Nationals had a serious pigeon problem in Game 2 of the NLDS.
But, the Nats did win that game, which might suggest that the pigeons have a little more magic in them than we initially thought.
This idea to celebrate Jayson Werth’s last season with the club:
my dream is for JW wolfpack hats. *cough* @Nationals https://t.co/Haq48WCTEC— JWerth's Beard (@JWerthsBeard) January 15, 2017
Wolfpack hats look like this, by the way.
This serious, practical idea to get fans into the ballpark:
@federalbaseball @WKubzansky 1) bring back magnet schedules, 2) bring back t-shirt Tuesdays, 3) kids stuff every Sunday. #Nats— PowerBoater69 (@PowerBoater69) January 15, 2017
Incidentally, a lot of people seem to be very interested in the prospect of the return of the magnet schedule.
This idea that keeps it simple:
@federalbaseball @WKubzansky old school simplicity: plastic batting helmets for kids.— Eric Schnure (@ESchnure) January 15, 2017
This idea that may be the one of the greatest things since the movie “A League of Their Own”:
@federalbaseball @WKubzansky a theme night for 25th anniversary of A League of Their Own, including the #Nats in Rockford Peaches uniforms— PowerBoater69 (@PowerBoater69) January 15, 2017
Although it may be hard to get the legal rights to do this, it would be extremely cool.
This idea that may be slightly explicit:
@federalbaseball @WKubzansky Max Scherzer "strikeouts are sexy" bobble head where he's only wearing whitey tighties— James Allen (@jealle78) January 15, 2017
This idea that is a less explicit version of the previous idea:
@federalbaseball @WKubzansky got to have a 20k Scherzer bobblehead Kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk strikeouts are sexy agreed!— Chris McClure (@C_McClure27) January 15, 2017
There we go.
This extremely creative idea:
@WKSideofNats @federalbaseball a Trea Turner centaur like bobblehead but the body is a cheetah and the torso/head is Trea would be sweet IMO— Chris Jackson (@NatinalFever) January 15, 2017
Trea Centurner? Centaurea Centaurner? The possibilities are endless!
This sweet idea:
@WKSideofNats @federalbaseball I also think Nats Pez dispensers would be cool— JWerth's Beard (@JWerthsBeard) January 15, 2017
Of course, we would first have to decide the flavor of the Pez inside.
This bobblehead that would be really exciting for the friends and family of Captain Obvious:
@federalbaseball There was a fan of the year contest in which @BeardedNatitude won. A fan bobblehead could be fun. Maybe this one lol pic.twitter.com/djsWu0xAJ8— Captain Obvious (@NatsCaptObvious) January 15, 2017
Captain Obvious is a minor celebrity at Nats park at this point, especially after all the times Bob and F.P. have talked about him on the air.
This idea that MASN would likely be more than happy to coordinate:
@WKSideofNats @federalbaseball how about an @FightinHydrant figurine that says 'TGTNH'— Chris Jackson (@NatinalFever) January 15, 2017
Now if only there was an idea for a Dan Kolko bobblehead...
This idea that Bryce Harper, Las Vegas native, could probably get behind:
@WKSideofNats @federalbaseball they need to have an Elvis day for the 40th Anniversary of his death.— Brian Rothbart (@BRothbart1976) January 15, 2017
The Elvis fanatics in the crowd would thank the Nationals very much.
