Chimera Bobblehead Coming
This is actually the real Jason Chimera, not the bobblehead. Hard to believe, we know. (Caps Outsider)
The worst-kept secret in Washington Capitals bobblehead lore has been confirmed. The Caps Kids Club, which had a gag order of sorts in discussing the issue during the lockout, told me that the Jason Chimera bobblehead will be distributed to Caps Kids Club members. The Kids Club continued to solicit members despite the lockout, sending out packages of goodies with a note saying that the whacky wobbler would be released at a later date.
No word on what they would’ve done if the lockout continued, since the $15 fee was supposed to include a bobblehead despite the lockout. We’re told that fans will be sent a voucher to pick up the bobblehead at a game.
We highly encourage you to sign up a real kid for the Caps Kids Club, and not make one up just to get your hands on this item. Sign up here for this and other goodies.
Maybe one day, Chimera will get his own plush doll, like Brooks Laich.
