Lots of Madison Mallards (summer collegiate; Northwoods League) news today: the team released plans for a protesting Maynard G. Mallard bobblehead, suitable for the political message of your choice.
The reference, of course, is to the protests over the course of Wisconsin state government after Gov. Scott Walker led a move to limit the collective bargaining rights of many state employees while also increasing their contributions to benefits. The protests attracted hundreds of thousands of protests to the State Capitol and attracted the attention of the nation. The sign will be blank, and fans can write in their own message. Fans will receive the bobblehead at the July 1 Mallards game.
