If you were under the impression that Gov. Larry Hogan has greeted his cancer diagnosis, chemotherapy treatments, and attendant baldness with anything but good humor, may I present the upcoming “Bobblection.”To raise awareness for lymphoma, the Double-A Bowie Baysox will be hosting a unique bobblehead giveaway at their July 24 game against the Erie Seawolves. The first 1,000 fans will choose between two Gov. Larry Hogan bobbleheads: one sporting ample silver locks and one bald “right down to the hardwood,” as my grandfather would say. The style to run out first will win.
Hogan himself will be at the game, according to WBAL, and the Baysox will auction off special lime-green jerseys to raise funds for cancer charities.
The “Bobblection” resembles a question Hogan put to informal “referendum” after his non-Hodgkins lymphoma went into remission, his treatments were over, and his hair began to grow back — whether to grow let post-chemo locks “flow” or to keep the bald look. (In the end he opted to make the final decision with his wife.)
