Bartolo Colon Bobblehead Greatest of All Time
Bartolo Colon's first career home run is the gift that just keeps giving. Not only was he the oldest player in MLB history to slug his first career home run, he's Big Sexy! Bartolo freakin' Colon! If you don't love watching him play, there is something seriously wrong with you.
It was a momentous occasion etched in
stone a special edition Topps baseball card.

Someone got a semi-weird looking tattoo of Colon.
There are few things in the world less important than a mans word. In this case, a statement was made at the beginning of the season, and it came true. Matt Sassi said to his buddy, Anthony Triola: "If Bartolo Colon hits a home run this year, I'll get a commemorative tattoo". Before the game on Saturday I met them in McFadden's and they told me about this bet. You'd think, ok... that's not happening. Right? WRONG! Coolest part of the bet was that they were both there to witness the feat in person. Matt is a Middletown, NY native that moved to San Diego. What were the odds that Bart would be on the hill the day of our invasion? What are the odds he'd go yard? Slim to damn near impossible. Matt could have chickened out and not gotten it at all, or gotten something small that could easily have been hidden. Instead he went balls to the freakin' wall with pretty much a half sleeve. Tossed THE 7 LINE ARMY on there for good measure and added the date of Bart's now famous swing. You manned up, Matt. Bravo.

We even saw a terrific mash up of the home run with The Natural on YouTube.
Well, this trumps all!
Not only has ClarkToys.com come out with a commemorative bobblehead to celebrate this moment, the head isn't the only thing that
That's right... Colon's belly is like a bowl full of jelly. If this isn't the greatest bobblehead of all time, I don't know what is. I'm preordering mine, heck, about 10 of these right now! Better hurry, they're limited to just 242 available.
