Ryan Howard Bobblehead: Is It a Gnome or a Lawn Jockey?

Posted By on Thu, May 27, 2010 at 4:37 PM

Earlier this year the Philadelphia Phillies awarded St. Louis native Ryan Howard with one of the most lucrative contracts in the game -- 5 years, $125 million.

Unable to top that, the Phillies' AA affiliate in Reading, Pennsylvania, recently honored Howard with the next most prestigious tribute in all of baseball: his very own bobblehead. 

Unfortunately, the doll (actually it's a garden gnome, according to the team) looks a lot like one of those politically-incorrect lawn jockeys.

Or, as a commenter on Deadspin, noted:

"More evidence that Grampa Smurf was smurfing his slave, Silly Hemmings."
