Bobblehead Monday #23

Bobblehead #23
Name: Humphrey the Hawk
Position: Mascot
Team: Boise Hawks
Description: 7 inches; Humphrey, with baseball hat on sideways, is carrying a football in his left wing and striking the Heisman Trophy pose.
Relevance:  I went to a Boise Hawks game (Northwest League Rookie affiliate of the Chicago Cubs) back in June of 2010 with my in-laws.  Humphrey was a fun mascot and did a great job of adding to the minor league atmosphere.
How Acquired: another eBay purchase!
Other Notes: I’m not sure of the significance of Humphrey the Hawk’s high-stepping Heisman pose, other than some snappy alliteration, and the fact that Boise St. has had some really strong football teams, especially in 2006 and 2009, but it's a pretty cool looking bobblehead!
