Brian Wilson Garden Gnomes?

You know the endless stories of the baseball teams that schedule bobblehead nights prior to the season and, then, when that date finally rolls around...the player immortalized in ceramic is no longer with the club?

I'm guessing the San Francisco Giants are hoping closer Brian Wilson doesn't decide to shave anytime soon.

Why?

When the 2010 World Champs square off against the Oakland A's May 20...they're giving away Brian Wilson garden gnomes to the first 20,000 fans.

While the promo item isn't original to the Giants (the Hagerstown Sun immortalized one of their favorite, um, sons last season)...it is one of the better ones.

Also up for grabs to those planning on hitting AT&T park this upcoming season...Sergio Romo, Pablo Sandoval and Madison Bumgarner bobbleheads, superhero capes, welcome mats and "Texting Gloves".

So, yeah, on May 20, you can your Wilson garden gnome at the park or, naturally, you wait a day later and "Get Heeem" on eBay.
