A minor league baseball team in St. Paul, Minn., has a twist on the bobblehead. The 2,500 fans at Sunday's game got a bobblefoot. It's a plastic model of a bathroom stall ... with a bobbling, tapping foot peeking out from under it. The team plays near the Twin Cities airport where Sen. Larry Craig was arrested in a sex sting. But they say it wasn't a reference to the wide stance — just honoring National Tap Dance Day.

ROBERT SMITH, Host:

Good morning. I'm Robert Smith.

A minor league baseball team in St. Paul, Minnesota, has a twist on the bobblehead. The 2,500 fans at yesterday's game got a bobblefoot. It's a plastic model of a bathroom stall with a bobbling, tapping foot peeking out from under it. The team plays near the Twin Cities airport where Senator Larry Craig was arrested on a sex sting. But they say it wasn't a reference to the wide stance - just honoring National Tap Dance Day.

It's MORNING EDITION.
