If he ever retires, ageless Pats quarterback Tom Brady is a lock for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, but in the meantime he’s getting props from another august body: the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum in Milwaukee.
Yes, it exists, and yes, it’s now peddling TB12 merchandise.
“This morning, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled an officially licensed, limited edition Tom Brady and Pat Patriot Bobblehead featuring Brady high-fiving Pat Patriot,” the team’s beloved mascot, said Phil Sklar, cofounder and chief executive of the Bobblehead Hall, in a statement Friday. “The bobblehead is part of a first-of-its-kind series featuring 12 current NBA, NFL, NHL and MLB stars high-fiving their team’s mascot, and this is the first bobblehead featuring Tom Brady and Pat Patriot together.”
The very first? Add it to the list of milestones for the Pats’ signal caller.
Sklar, in boldface type, also noted in his e-mail message that “any article mentioning this bobblehead should include the fact that the bobbleheads were manufactured by FOCO.”
Brady and company will square off against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night at Gillette Stadium.
“Kansas City up next,” Brady said in a recent video clip posted to his official Facebook page.
He made no reference during the brief clip to his star turn on Bobblehead Boulevard.Travis Andersen can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow him on Twitter @TAGlobe.
