Here Comes the Hammer!

We all know the story of MC Hammer, right?

Long before the genie pants, "U Can't Touch This" and bankruptcy, MC Hammer was an employee of the Oakland A's.

It's true.

When the iconic entertainer was a kid, former A's owner Charles O. Finley discovered the 11-year-old dancing and doing splits outside Oakland Coliseum and offered him a job.

Well, the boys over at Cosby Sweaters have discovered that the A’s have figured out how to re-pay their former clubhouse assistant.

MC Hammer bobblehead has become a reality for MLB. Check out the MC Hammer bobblehead, presented by Supercuts, which will be available to 15,000 fans on Sunday, July 17.

I’m not sure who thought this was a good idea…but is it okay to say I want one?

And, no, that has nothing to do with the fact that it looks more like Carlton from “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air” than it does the former “funky headhunter”.
