And Another Thing

Sporting Kansas City players look on as goalie Jimmy Nielson is treated after he was hit in the face with piece of a bobblehead doll that was thrown from the stands during the first half of an MLS soccer match against the Portland Timbers at Livestrong Stadium on Wednesday. Nielsen continued to play after being treated.

Assault with a deadly collectible

This is why you never hand out cool stuff to fans, especially if they're soccer fans.

I mean, really, throwing a bobblehead at a guy? And even more cruel, not even his own bobblehead?

Something else to keep out of the hands of your kids, I guess.

"You need to be very, very careful with bobbleheads, son. Sometimes the darn things just go off in your hand without warning."

Or something like that.
