It was never Sister Rosalind Gefre's dream to have her likeness immortalized as a bobblehead. But once the St. Paul Saints got the idea of honoring their back-rubbing nun with a Sister Gefre figurine, the massage therapist learned to accept it.(I don't think that was an intentional pun....)
"I pray a lot. I just said, 'Jesus, it's your business,' " she said. " 'Whatever happens, it's in your hands.' "
But on Saturday, it'll be all about her hands. The first 1,500 Saints fans who arrive at Midway Stadium will receive their own Sister Gefre bobblehands — a miniature statue of the attention-spurning sister herself. The figure stands with outstretched spring-loaded wrists, as if ready to work out those troublesome kinks.
Certainly a twist from the ruler-snapping stereotype, eh?
