Milwaukee – Allen Lazard gets his first femoral head. It comes with exotic lizards.
Since the wide receiver left Iowa State University and joined the Green Bay Packers as an unpolished free agent prior to the rookie season in 2018, Lazard quickly attracted affection from Packer fans and earned a nickname: Alien Lizard.
Now, his first-ever doll pays tribute to that title.
The Milwaukee-based National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum released the first Lazard bobblehead on Friday.
While the bobblehead design is fairly standard—Lazard holds a soccer ball while wearing his green and gold Number 13 uniform, the blond slit in his short slash and his smiling face ready to bob—at his feet are a pair of green and gold lizards.
