The poker hype's officially gone too far

    Seriously, even the most hardcore Hold 'em freak can't possibly want this thing for free, much less for 20 bucks...

    Dude, Those things have been about for ages, like the hockey/basketball/football jerseys et al. Some players use them as card protectors.

    Seriously. I have a Johnny Chan bobblehead that I got as a groomsman's gift last year, and the only reason it's not Jenny is that hers wasn't out yet. Mmmmmmmm, Harman. Sorry, anyway. And perhaps the hype's gone too far, but it's not because of Jenny's bobblehead. It's definitely because there is such a thing as "Hip Hop Hold 'Em," which I believe appears verrrry late at night (like after Soul Train) on Saturdays.

    Clearly I've just been oblivious to that trend. Was looking for some gift possibilities on Amazon and suddenly found a whole slew of these things. Harman's definitely more appealing than some possibilities - Humberto Brenes, anyone?

    What about Clonie McGowan, Evelyn NG and Vanessa Rousso?

    I think that bobblehead looks like Ellen Degeneres more than it does that girl in the picture.

    Harman's cute. That picture doesn't do her justice.
    Vanessa Rousso's ridiculous. Nobody should be allowed to be that good looking and sit at a poker table.

    You can get them of a lot, I think Gowan's available, as are most full tilters.

    Helmuth's should have a speech button that swears everytime you hit it.

    I love poker, but I can't imagine ever wanting a Jennifer Harman bobblehead for any reason. At all. Ever.

    Heck neither do I, but for those that do want them - and you know there are those who do - the market it open.
