Bobble of the Day
Team: Miami Hurricanes
Manufacturer: Forever Collectibles
The U!!!!! Listen, I have no ties or affiliation with the Miami Hurricanes, but you can’t deny that when a player of any sport that goes there and raises up the “U” symbol with their hands, it’s not bad ass! Of course it is! Raising up the “U” sign I feel is a borderline gang sign for christ sakes. It’s really hard. If I had to go back in time, I would go to the University of Miami just to say I’m a part of the “U” family.
Anyway, on to the bobble. So, Sebastian is the Hurricanes mascot as Miami adopted a native marsh bird called the Ibis as the official mascot back in 1926. The Ibis is known for its bravery as a hurricane approaches. As for the name Sebastian, I have no idea where Miami discovered that one. Kinda fruity if you ask me. Anyway, Sebastian is wearing bright orange and yellow colors which really pop. On this particular bobble, he’s got the yellow shoes on with orange high socks. His jersey is a colorful orange to match his beak. Not only does the head bobble but his arms bobble as well as he’s saluting he’s from the “U”. FOCO made their 2105 series of bobbles with a springy attached to the base which is a cool feature. On the springy it’s got Miami’s official log as it bobbles back and forth. The base is pretty standard and the letters are raised but they are silver just like the base. I don’t truly love it as I think it should be a darker color to offset the base.
Sniper Rating: Everything points up with this Mascot bobble representing the “U”. If you look on Ebay, there’s not to many Sebastian bobbles out there. Any manufacturer should start making more of him because Miami University is a top notch school both in football and especially baseball. It’s a shame not more bobbles of Miami’s mascot are not made. You gotta love the “U” and Sebastian rocks the “U” very well. In addition, I dig the colors on the box very much as it’s a maroon color with a visible front that displays the bobble. Sebastian and the “U” receive nothing less than a 9.5 rating. Get this one if you can as this one will turn some heads in your man cave for sure.
