Name: Homer the Dragon
Team: Charlotte Knights
Description: 7.25 inches tall; wearing a Charlotte Knights uniform and leaning on a bat. Homer is not only a bobblehead, but he also has a bobbling tail!
Relevance: I attended a Knights’ game on August 9th, 2007, with Laura and our good friends Mike and Rhonda, who live in Charlotte. This bobblehead commemorates my visit to yet another baseball park!
How Acquired: I won Homer the Dragon from an auction on eBay.

Other Notes: The texture of Homer’s fur is pretty fantastic. This is not a cheaply done bobble, as the fur is done with fine detail, which can’t be easy to create with a ceramic mold.
The tail is too much fun as it is capable of wagging or moving up & down. Homer is my only multi-bobbling-part figurine, and that alone secures him a spot in my Top 5 Favorite Bobbleheads.
Bonus Note: Homer broke the record for most hugs given by a mascot in a twenty-four span on May 24th, 2011. 5,615 lucky people helped Homer enter the record books!
|Just in case: Homer is the on the far left.|
