This new UMBC March Madness bobblehead is excellent


The UMBC Retrievers did what everyone thought was impossible to do. They defeated a No. 1 seed in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament.

UMBC shocked the world when it defeated Virginia 74-54 in the NCAA Tournament. It was the first 16-1 upset in history, and the Retrievers toppled the No. 1 overall seed.

Oh, it was also the first March Madness victory in UMBC history. Not too shabby right?

It was impressive and their performance had the nation talking throughout the NCAA Tournament.

Now, you can start talking again… because the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum is about to release a bobblehead that will transport you right back to March.

Check out their new commemorative UMBC bobblehead below.
