THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

It has been months since Idaho Sen. Larry Craig was arrested in a Minneapolis airport men's room, but the Midwest city hasn't forgotten his visit.

Minneapolis newspapers are reporting that the St. Paul Saints, the city's minor league baseball team, is handing out a "bobblefoot" doll to the first 2,500 fans at Sunday night's game.

"The keepsakes consist of a miniature bathroom stall with a couple of lower legs and feet," the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "One of the feet is springloaded and 'taps,' which, the Saints' press release says, is in honor of National Tap Dance Day. Right."
