Getting his due

Look, no one who comes within a mile of this website needs me to introduce Michael Poll. We all know the happy, all-about-the-Panthers fan who is above the rest.   Always loud, never laid back, he’s the spiritual leader of the little family we like to call “Panther Nation.”

Two longtime friends of Michael, Phil Sklar and Brad Novak, thought it was high time to recognize Michael in a way he hasn’t been immortalized before. Bring in the “MichaelBobbles,” a bobblehead specifically made for our own Michael Poll, ready to yell “baby school” at the next unexpecting 18-year old women’s soccer player who isn’t wearing black and gold.

The bobbleheads will hit Milweaukee on November 1st, but the first run of 500 is not expected to last until then; pre-orders have been selling like hot cakes.

Whenever the university finally gets around to building a physical Hall of Fame for the athletics program (and I don’t mean a wall against the Natatorium), this bobblehead – and a section commemorating Michael Poll’s time with the program – are most definitely going to be a part of it.

I’ve already ordered two bobbleheads, so I’m covered. But what about you? Have you ordered yours?

The bobblehead itself is a full-sized seven inch statue that is made of the same top-of-the-line material you’d find at a Brewers game.  It comes in a decorative box and can be shipped anywhere in the country ($7 for the first, $1 for each additional bobblehead) or picked up in Milwaukee for free.

Michael’s personal commitment to the Special Olympics of Wisconsin will be recognized as a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the charity.
