How To Make A Bibby Head - A Balcony Gal Tauntable

Going off to Game 3 in Atlanta? Bring a Bibby Head and continue the "Rondo's Better" chant. They are easy to make and lots of fun.

What you will need for this project:

-12 Popsicle sticks
-12 pieces of card stock, white
-glue stick

-a printer with plenty of color ink
-this photo
-a three year old

Directions for your Tauntable:

(1)Download and print your Bibby head (from the link above) onto card stock. This is what they look like as they are coming out of the printer. You can stand there and giggle to yourself while thinking: look, a little Bibby head pokin' out.

(2)Hand the printed sheets, the glue stick and the Popsicle sticks to the three year old. If you don't have a three year old, borrow one. But tell the parents first because we don't like when you just take our kids. Instruct the child to glue the sticks onto the back of the paper so they make a handle. Depending upon the brain function of the child and how anal YOU are, you may want to stick around and help. Otherwise just back off and let the kid go to town.

(3)optional: make yourself a cocktail.

(4)When the kid isn't looking, tape the sticks firmly to the paper. Just using a glue stick isn't going to work.

(5)Hand out Bibby heads to Balcony Neighbors and bar goers before the game.

The Bibby heads were a good laugh. One of our Balcony Neighbors brought some print outs of his own so we were able to share them amongst the crowd in our section. Unfortunately for us, as we were working hard to get the 'Rondo's Better' chant going and had our Bibby Heads waiving, the dork fest (I'm being SOOO kind here) behind us kept yelling at us to put down the Bibby Heads and kept overpowering our chant with their standard Let's Go Celtics. Sigh. We tried. It was fun.

10 Balcony Points to each of our Balcony Neighbors who rallied hard last night.
-10 Balcony Points to each of our Balcony Neighbors who continue to act like asses and can't play nice with their Balcony Peers.
-40 Balcony Points to this camera guy who almost put our Bibby Heads on the jumbotron but then said NO WAY.

+40 Points right back at him though, because it can't be an easy job and he's kind of cute.

There is a lot more to report on last nights game but let's just start with this Tauntable (so is a word. Intructable was taken). Any suggestions for future Tauntables? Bring it on.

I just love the fact that Perk totally outplayed him, after Bibby said that stuff about him not having enough of a career to be making comments.

All of this talk about Bibby trying to take pressure for his younger team doesn't mean he's not dropping crap out of his mouth. I'm glad Perk came out hard but Bibby's stats are not great right now.

Kate and JC, thanks for laughing and weighing in!
