On Sept. 4, you might notice lots of inappropriate chicken-like kung-fu noises in the vicinity of AT&T Park. In honor of the Year of the Dragon, the San Francisco Giants are hosting Bruce Lee night, which includes, among many other treats, your free Bruce bobblehead.

Hosting a Bruce Lee night was kind of a no-brainer for the Giants. Aside from the fact that Lee was a kick-ass martial arts guru, he's also a San Francisco native. 

"We spread the idea, and people really liked it," said Faham Zakariaei, director of special ticket events. "So we reached our to Bruce Lee Enterprises, and they were all for it."

Lee's wife and daughter will make an appearance that night, which will also include some pregame martial arts demonstrations on the field. "Based off the Chinese American population in San Francisco, and the marital arts students, we expect 4,000 to 5,000 specific clients to come out for that day," Zakariaei said.

Now for the question you are all wondering: What position would Lee play if he had been on the Giants?

"Probably the closer, because he tends to come in and save the day," Zakariaei said.

I'm sure Jun Fang would have probably looked at this as a symbol of heritage. He is truly missed by me and a lot of his old friends.

The Mariners, A's and Dodgers should follow suit to honor Lee since he also lived in Seattle, Oakland and L.A.
