Michal Neuvirth Bobblehead is No Hello Neuvy

Folks who made their way to Kettler Capitals Iceplex on Saturday for the Inova Blood Drive got themselves the latest Capitals bobblehead, goaltender Michal Neuvirth.

Not a bad sculpt at all, but hardly the caricature of the young Czech we’ve come to love, such as Hello Neuvy, or Icelandic singer Bjork. (My grandmother thought he was Japanese – anyone wanna draw a picture of him holding a samurai sword?).

Considering other Inova-sponsored Caps bobbleheads – which are limited only to a few thousand total – have sold for upwards of $100 on eBay, it’ll be interesting to see what goaltender 1A will fetch. Someone already listed one for a starting price of $50. That’s some expensive blood.
