During the “Umpteen Days of Christmas“, I’m giving away some really cool Reds-related stuff here on Better Off Red.  Several Reds departments within the front office have graciously donated these prizes as a “thank you” for your support.

Congratulations to Day 11 winner – Christina Keister

Today’s gift is a signed Scott Rolen bobblehead and a Better Off Red t-shirt, courtesy of Game Day Events and Burt BobbleRed.

A gift like that would make me Dad Of The Year!! At least in my son’s eyes it would. He would give a signed bobblehead — especially a great like Rolen — a place of honor on his shelf.

I would love to get this because while the Scott Rolen bobblehead is sweet and would occupy a place of honor in my home, the BOR t-shirt would instantly make me the envy of all my misguided, slightly mentally defective Yankee-loving friends. Thanks!

Because my daughter would love to have that under the tree – and we are huge Reds fans.

I like Reds.

As a huge Rolen fan, all I can say is PICK ME!!!

Scott Rolen rocks! Like Rolen, I am a Hoosier–at least an honorary one, since I lived in lovely Bloomington, IN, home of Indiana University, for ten years. Now that I’m back in my hometown of Cincinnati, I would be proud to display the Rolen bobblehead on my desk. And the BOR t-shirt would be worn constantly, of course. GO IU!! More importantly, GO Scotty and GO REDS!!

Pick me because I like Bobbleheads and I really want a BOR t-shirt.

‘Twas five days till Christmas and all through the ‘Nati,
The big trade last weekend has me feeling batty.

I check BOR daily, follow on twitter too,
Even though you’re from Miami, I have a degree from OU.

When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
Umpteen days of this swanky Reds gear!

Suddenly I realized, when making my list
A Rolen bobble and BOR shirt I must’ve missed.

I have several Reds bobbles at home on a shelf,
But none of Scott Rolen, nor signed by himself.

Though I always liked the image of Burt,
I’d settle for this one, and the wrinkles won’t hurt.

I dream of Spring Training and the opening game,
When Marty will shout and call them by name:

Now! Votto, now! Phillips, now! Rolen and Bruce;
On! Stubby, on! Heisey, and 1’s and the 2’s!

With Pujols bought out and Braun on a shelve,
The division will be ours in Two-thousand-and-twelve!

So grant me that bobble and shirt if you please,
Happy Christmas to BOR, I’ll wear it to the World Series!

Ok – really cool stuff and I’d love to have it – but how can you not pick @redsfan5_14 with that witty poem!

Jamie you gotta give it to this girl! She clearly wants it more than the rest of us.

I think you mean JL. The author is below the post.

Rolen is the only bobblehead from the current roster. I would LOVE this. And the T-shirt too!

I don’t own any clothes, I need the shirt to keep warm in the cold winter.

I would love to win this because Scott Rolen is THE MAN! (….and quite possibly the one person who could take on Johnny Gomes and Chuck Norris at the same time with one pinkey toe tied behind his back.)

I NEED a BOR t-shirt…that is all!!!

I collect bobbleheads and I am missing a Scott Rolen one. This would be a great addition to my collection.

I have an Edinson Volquez, Two Joey Votto’s, a Brandon Phillips, and a Johnny Gomes bobblehead on my shelves at home. I need a Scott Rolen to help complete my bobblehead collection.

Huge reds fan, and my 4 year old son is a even bigger reds and votto fan. Would make a nice xmas gift for him this year. Also enjoy the blog!

How cool is that…IRolen is awesome! An all around good guy and excellent ambassador for the Reds and baseball in genreal.

The shirt would be a great addition to my wardrobe!

Yes, please.

Although I have lived just outside Kansas City for the past seven years, I was born and raised as a Reds fan in Dayton, OH. My love for the Reds has only gotten stronger since moving to KC, and I try to showcase my dedication to the team every chance I get. I deserve to win today’s giveaway because I have stuck by the Reds through good times and bad, and I will always do so. People often tell me a Reds win or loss should not dictate whether I am in a good or bad mood, and my response to them is always the same – “let’s just hope the Reds win tonight.”

I want one because Rolen is a beast!

I need a BOR shirt!!!

I hope Rolen can stay healthy and I would love the t shirt! Go Reds!

I have Coldplay echoing through my head right now! For the love of Scotty this would be a great prize! Wish me luck! :)

I would love to add this bobblehead to our families collection.

Rolen’s BBH would complete my infield. Thanks for considering this old time Red’s fan.


Another day, another hopeful entry!

ive been a faithful reds fan all year santa

I want this because of that sweet Better Off Red t-shirt… I mean, I guess that Scott Rolen bobblehead is ok. But that t-shirt, that’s the stuff dreams are made of

my wife calls me a bobble head this was ment for me i think

i would share the gift, shirt for dad, scott rolen bobblehead for me

We love Scott Rolen, especially my 8 year old daughter, and who wouldn’t want a BOR t-shirt! The wrinkles go nicely with the rest of our wardrobe.

This bobblehead would make a great addition to my bobblehead collection. Another BOR t-shirt would be a great added bonus also!

I would love to have the autographed Scott Rolen bobblehead to add to my son’s collection. The t-shirt would be great too. Thank you.

I would love to win this Scott rolen bobblehead because I have always been a big supporter of his and it would look great next to my Joey one! Also I would dieee if I got a BOR shirt. Meeting you at redsfest was definitely my highlight! Thanks and go redlegs!

Happy Holidays to BOR…. Love to add this to my bobblehead collection.!

I’ve tried everyday. I am deserving!

Well, I would LOVE the t-shirt, and if Jamie autographed it, that would be icing on the cake! It would make a great belated birthday gift for myself (12/17). The bobblehead would go to my 2 year old grandson who is already a huge Reds fan. Lastly, I’ve never won anything from BOR.

I’d love to have Scott in my living room during games…agreeing with me when I second guess the umpires or Dusty…

I would love to display both of these proudly in my office! Merry Christmas and thank you for the opportunity! I’ve tried everyday but still think it’s great your doing this and helping to spread holiday cheer!

I LOVE SCOTT ROLEN! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Sorry, I got a bit excited. But clearly you can see how I feel about this particular Umpteen giveaway. And I’ve heard that a “lightly crinkled” BOR shirt is all the rage right now. It seems only natural an iron wouldn’t be included. Besides, who uses irons anymore? (Besides my roommate.)

I’ve been to every Reds bobblehead game since 2002 and would love to finally have one signed!! Plus I’m still looking for something to wear to Christmas dinner so that shirt would sure come in handy!

Because I think Rolen is going to have a good year this year and I want to give it to my son as a gift. The shirt I’m keeping for myself because I love your blog!

I think one of these prizes should go to Paul. He needs some help starting his Reds fan collection.

I like rolen and bobble heads are cool… i got just enough room for it on my dresser with my other reds stuff help me get enough to move it to a shelf

the bobblehead is nice (not as nice as Burt) but the shirt is awesome!

Scott is definitely one of my favorite players (if only he could stay healthy!) and I always check in to BOR to get the inside scoop on what’s going on with the Reds. Jamie provides a great service to us fans.
