Jack Evans Creates Own Bobblehead Likeness

Jack Evans' Office

The Jack Evans bobblehead

You know you've made it when someone creates a bobblehead in your likeness.

Locally, that honor goes to the likes of Alex Ovechkin, Lindsay Czarniak and Teddy.

But does it count when someone makes his own bobblehead? Someone like, say ... Jack Evans?

The D.C. councilman apparently had some campaign cash left over this year and decided to blow it on some mini Jack Evanses to give to friends, supporters and associates.

For $2,000, Evans was able to score 100 bobbleheads, which he is signing (collector's item!) and is slowly distributing around town. His kids, of course, have theirs. As does Washington Capitals owner Ted Leonsis, who went so far as to mention it on his blog:

"My Jack Evans bobblehead is proudly displayed right next to my Alex Ovechkin bobblehead in my office at Kettler Capitals Iceplex," Leonsis wrote. "Way to go Jack."

And just this week NBC4 political reporter Tom Sherwood picked up his mini Evans. Being the smart journalist that he is, Sherwood didn't want to accept the gift and offered to pay for it. Instead, the two agreed that Sherwood would get the bobblehead if he donated $20 to the charity of his choice. Journalistic integrity saved!

So how can you get your own copy? We suppose you can ask Jack nicely. If that doesn't work, you might have to keep an eye on eBay. We're sure demand will be high.
